CARIBOU, Maine — The Maine veterans’ home in Caribou will get a multipurpose room addition with the help of a federal grant.

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki announced Monday that the state will receive $336,294 for assistance in the project.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud of Maine, chairman of the Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Health, says the grant will save the state money and provide residents of the Caribou facility with additional space for activities.
