FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Northern Indiana’s VA Health Care System could be getting a boost in project funding.

The US Department of Veterans Affairs’ proposed 2020 fiscal year budget includes over $12-million for planned construction projects, including $3.5-million for expanding the VA cemetery in Marion.

The Journal Gazette reports other projects include putting $826,000 toward the construction of an oncology clinic in Fort Wayne.

A remodel of the second floor of Fort Wayne’s VA hospital is fairly low on the agency’s priority list and is unlikely to get funding in 2020.
