Scratch tickets boosting revenue for Iowa veterans

Posted:

IOWA (KWWL)-- Scratch play tickets are boosting revenue for the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund.

The first payment of one million dollars from special Iowa lottery scratch games was received Thursday.  

All the profits are put into veterans account, and interest is used for college tuition assistance, job training and health benefits for Iowa veterans.

Lawmakers created the fund in 2003. It's intended to create a $50 million endowment.
