AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A project that would build cabins for homeless veterans on the grounds of a federal veterans’ hospital will receive nearly $400,000 in low-income tax credits.

The Cabin in the Woods project is a proposed development by the nonprofit organization Volunteers of America. It would be located on the grounds of the veterans’ hospital at Togus about six miles from Maine’s state capital.

The Kennebec Journal (https://bit.ly/1lzdqSr ) reports the $4 million project is meant to serve homeless veterans who need to be close to services at the hospital. It would be on 11 wooded acres of federal property and include a community center and 21 private, energy-efficient cabins.

The project still needs more money to move forward.
