Date:6/8/2009

WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To ensure high-quality health services for Veterans at the state home in Tilton, N.H., the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is awarding a grant of up to $3.7 million for upgrades there, including energy enhancements and asbestos abatement.

The estimated cost of the project at the State Veterans Home in Tilton is $5.7 million, with VA's grant covering 65 percent of the total. The New Hampshire Veterans Home agreed to enter into a contract for the improvements within 90 days of an agreement with VA.

Last year, VA spent more than $336 million in New Hampshire on behalf of the state's 131,000 Veterans. VA operates a major medical center in Manchester and five outpatient clinics. The Department's facilities provided care last year during 189,000 outpatient visits.

The state-run Veterans home in Tilton supplements these federal services. For more information about the New Hampshire Veterans Home and other New Hampshire services for Veterans, visit www.nh.gov/nhveterans/bene.html.
