Iowa Veterans Home to get $525,000 for repairs

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Sen. Tom Harkin and Rep. Bruce Braley say the Iowa Veterans home will receive a grant of more than $525,000.

The Democratic lawmakers announced Wednesday that the home in Marshalltown will get the grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The money will be used to update two generators and build a transportation facility.

The home received a $24 million grant last month to renovate two buildings.

The Iowa Veterans Home is the nation’s third-largest such facility, with 755 beds available.
