BANGOR, Maine — The state is going to benefit from up to $2.7 million for a renovation and expansion project at the Maine Veterans’ Home facility in Bangor, Maine’s U.S. senators said.

The funding is coming from the federal Department of Veterans Affairs’ State Home Construction Grant Program, said Republican Sen. Susan Collins and independent Sen. Angus King.

The renovations at the Bangor facility are underway. The needed improvements will modernize the facility, give residents a more comfortable space to live and create a safe environment for employees, the senators said.

The project involves renovating a 20,000-square-foot skilled nursing unit and adding 5,000 square feet to expand the 40-bed unit.
