WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton along with Congressman French Hill today announced a $15.6 million grant for the construction of a new nursing home facility for veterans in North Little Rock.
"Ensuring that Arkansas veterans receive the care they have earned is an important investment in our state. I remain committed to making sure our nation keeps its promise to our veterans for their service and sacrifice,” Boozman said.
“This grant will help construct a new, state-of-the-art facility for our aging veterans,” Cotton said. “Our men and women in uniform put their lives on the line in defense of our freedom. They deserve the very best care, no matter their stage in life.”
“Central Arkansas is home to many aging veterans that need constant and specialized care. I encourage the completion of this project in a quick and efficient manner so we can improve our ability to provide our veterans with the healthcare services they need and deserve,” Hill said.
The $15,629,941.60 grant is from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The ground breaking for the North Little Rock facility took place last month.
