Virginia State Receives $5,231,654 Grant for the Expansion of Virginia Veterans Cemetery

August 25, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) announced today that it has awarded the state of Virginia a grant in the amount of $5,231,654 for the expansion of Virginia Veterans Cemetery Amelia.

"We are proud to work with the state of Virginia to provide expansion efforts for final resting places for its Veterans, their spouses and family members," said Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs Randy Reeves.

The grant will fund the construction of 3,604 pre-placed crypts, landscaping, and supporting infrastructure on approximately seven acres, enabling the cemetery to provide continued service for approximately 178,884 Veterans and their eligible family members.

The VA Veterans Cemetery Grants Program (VCGP) is designed to complement VA national cemeteries. Since its inception in 1978, the VCGP has awarded grants totaling more than $862 million to establish, expand, improve, or operate and maintain 117 state and tribal Veterans cemeteries. These grant-funded cemeteries provided more than 39,000 burials in fiscal year 2019.
