Kirkpatrick introduces bill to boost tribal construction of veteran nursing care homes

Posted: Wednesday, Aug 7th, 2013

Washington, D.C. U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., has introduced a bipartisan bill to designate that veteran nursing care homes built on tribal land qualify for construction funds and per diem grants, a status currently available only to those facilities built on state or federal land.

Arizona has more than 10,000 Native American veterans, but no veteran nursing homes are currently located on tribal land. Construction on tribal land does not qualify for the 65 percent VA construction reimbursement and per diem grants that support the construction of veteran nursing homes on land owned by states or territories.
