 Home in Ivins City to Receive $12.4 Million in VA Funding

WASHINGTON – The Department of Veterans Affairs is awarding more than $12.4 million for the state of Utah to construct a new Veterans home in Ivins City.

“Our federal-state partnership helps to provide comfortable and safe housing in a caring community for Utah 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 $19 million cost of the project.

In fiscal year 2011, VA spent $870 million to serve Utah’s more than 150,000 Veterans.  VA operates a major medical center in Salt Lake City, with seven outpatient clinics and three Vet Centers across the state.
