CalVet Gets $141 Million for Construction of Veterans Homes
Fresno Veterans Homes Gets $92 Million from the USDVA

The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) has received $142 million from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA) for construction of the Fresno and Redding Veterans Homes. CalVet will receive $92 million for construction of the 300-bed Veterans Home of California in Fresno and $50 million for construction of the Veterans Home of California in Redding. California will provide approximately $49 million for construction of the Fresno Veterans Home and $27 million for the Redding Veterans Home.

“We are all grateful that the USDVA has agreed to release the funding for our continued construction and procurement for completion of our Redding and Fresno State Veteran Homes,” said Robin Umberg, CalVet Undersecretary for Veterans Homes.

The Fresno Veterans Home’s design veers from a traditional shared-room floor plan to private rooms for veterans, which include special features designed to promote an intimate, residential ambiance. This veterans home will bring more than 400 jobs to the Fresno area.

“I know the opening of both of these homes is something the Governor’s office, CalVet, both sides of the political aisle, the USDVA, veterans service organizations, and these local communities all want to see happen,” stated Umberg. “We are all working together to do all that we can to open these two homes as soon as possible.”

CalVet reminds veterans in need and their families that they have the option of using one of the other California Veterans Homes located in Barstow, Chula Vista, Lancaster, Ventura, West Los Angeles, and Yountville until our Redding and Fresno Homes are up and running.

The Veterans Home of California – Fresno will be located at 2811 West California Avenue, Fresno, CA 93706.
