Sandusky Receives Federal Grant for Improvements

WASHINGTON –The Department of Veterans Affairs is awarding more than $300,000 for the state of Ohio to renovate the fire alarm system at the Veterans home in Sandusky.

“Our federal-state partnership helps ensure that comfortable and safe housing is provided in a caring community for Ohio Veterans who have served their country,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.

VA’s grant will cover approximately 65 percent of the estimated $500,000 cost of the project.

In fiscal year 2011, VA spent nearly $6.1 billion in Ohio to serve the state’s more than 840,000 Veterans.  Veterans Integrated Service Network 10 is headquartered in Cincinnati. VA also operates five major medical centers in Chillicothe, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton, 31 outpatient clinics, eight Vet Centers, and two national cemeteries across the state.

More information about the Ohio’s programs for Veterans is available on the Internet at http://dvs.ohio.gov/.
