The Oahu Veterans Council is receiving $2 million in capital improvement grant funds for improvements to the Oahu Veterans Center at Foster Village.

The money, as identified by the state legislature, will go toward the center’s final phase of construction, which includes a new 3,200-square-foot meeting hall, infrastructure and duct work for a future air conditioning system, utility infrastructure for a future restroom facility, and service driveway improvements.

Previous construction phases were completed in 2005 and 2006.

“This expansion of the Oahu Veterans Center, which these funds will help complete, is one way for the island community to express our aloha for our veterans and their families, who stood by and supported them through hardships and triumph,” Gov. Abercrombie said.

The Oahu Veterans Council is a private, nonprofit organization established in 1992 to serve as an umbrella organization for all veteran organizations of each branch on Oahu.
