King Receives Federal Grant for Improvements

 

WASHINGTON –The Department of Veterans Affairs is awarding more than $300,000 for maintenance and repair of the water tower at the Wisconsin Veterans home in King.

“Our federal-state partnership helps ensure that comfortable and safe housing is provided in a caring community for Wisconsin Veterans who have served their country,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.

VA’s grant will cover approximately 65 percent of the estimated $500,000 cost of the project.

In fiscal year 2011, VA spent nearly $2.2 billion in Wisconsin to serve the state’s 408,000 Veterans. VA operates three major medical centers in Madison, Milwaukee and Tomah, 18 outpatient clinics and four Vet Centers across the state, and a national cemetery.

Information about the Wisconsin state Veterans homes can be obtained on the Internet at dva.state.wi.us/homes.asp or by calling (715) 258-5586.
