Department of Veterans Affairs Awards HVAC Renovation Contract for Wisconsin Veterans Home
Apr 02, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The Department of Veterans Affairs is awarding nearly $800,000 to renovate the heating, ventilation and air conditions systems at Fairchild and Shermanske halls at the Wisconsin Veterans home in Union Grove.
"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 Shinseki, in a release.
VA's grant will cover approximately 65 percent of the project's cost, which carries a $1.2 million price tag.
According to a release, last year, VA spent nearly $2.2 billion in Wisconsin to serve the state's 408,000 Veterans. VA operates major medical centers in Madison, Milwaukee and Tomah, outpatient clinics and Vet Centers across the state, and a national cemetery.
Information about the Wisconsin state Veterans homes at Chippewa Falls, King and Union Grove can be obtained on the Internet at dva.state.wi.us/homes.asp or by calling (715) 258-5586.
