SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) - Maine’s U.S. senators say the federal Department of Veterans Affairs is awarding nearly a half million dollars to pay for a renovation project at the Maine Veterans’ Homes’ facility in Scarborough.

The senators say the money was awarded through the State Home Construction Grant Program. Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican, and Angus King, an independent, say the upgrades modernized the facility and provided residents with a more comfortable living space.

The money will pay for about two thirds of the six-month renovation project. The project wrapped up in October 2014. The updates were the first major upgrades to the facility in more than 20 years.
