Iowa veterans Home receives large grant

Posted:

MARSHALLTOWN (KWWL)---Senator Chuck Grassley announced Tuesday that Iowa has received a $727,058 competitive grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. 

The funding will provide 65 percent of the anticipated cost of construction for renovation of the medical clinic at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.

"These funds will help improve the quality of life of those who selflessly served our country.  We owe them a great debt of gratitude.  Further enhancement of this facility is one step in that direction," Grassley said.

The Iowa State Veterans Home is one of the three largest state-owned facilities for veterans in the country.  It is home to more than 720 residents.
