CHICAGO – The Illinois Veterans’ Home at Quincy will receive nearly $195 million to upgrade the facility, Assistant Majority Leader Tony Munoz announced Wednesday. Senator Munoz

“As a veteran, I have fought to ensure veterans have the essential resources they need when they return home,” said Munoz (D-Chicago). “This long-awaited upgrade invests in our veterans who fought for our freedom and rely on these services.”

Illinois received nearly $195 million from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to enhance the Illinois Veteran’s Home at Quincy. The funding will be used for campus reconstruction and replacement of the current veterans’ home with a 210-bed skilled care facility.

In addition, 80 independent rooms will be created which will modernize the campus and provide a cost effective, state-of-the art facility with single rooms and a more intimate setting for veterans needing skilled nursing care.

“Veterans have been a top priority in my legislative agenda and as the chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee,” Munoz said. “This investment will make a significant impact on the lives of our state’s veterans.”

The building construction grant comes from a federal-state partnership between the federal VA, Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Capital Development Board. The project is currently in progress with the completion targeted for the end of 2024.
