Bemidji Veterans Home project continues progress

The Bemidji Veterans Home continues to make progress in upper levels of government.

According to an article from the Minnesota Senate Republicans Caucus, members of the Minnesota Legislative Advisory Commission sent a letter to Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans approving the agency’s plans to spend pending federal grant funds.

The funds would be used for the construction of three veterans homes in Minnesota, Bemidji being one of those, and Montevideo and Preston being the other two.

In 2018, the legislature passed $32 million in state funding for these projects.

The Bemidji and Montevideo homes are expected to open in 2021, and the Preston home is anticipated for 2022.
