Iowa veterans home gets $29 million grant

DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown has received a $29 million grant for a building replacement project.

The grant is from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' State Veterans Home Grant Program.

Grassley says the money will help fund the replacement project at the Marshalltown facility as part of its plan to shift from an institutional environment to a more homelike atmosphere.

Latham says the grant will cover 65 percent of the anticipated costs of the project.

He says it's important to provide veterans who have served the country the best care possible in a state-of-the-art facility.
