Hawaii will receive $5,901,475 in federal funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs to expand and improve the Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery in Kaneohe, announced U.S. Senator Brian Schatz on September 28.
The Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery currently serves more than 83,000 veterans.
According to the announcement, the grant will fund 1,099 pre-placed crypts, improve the existing maintenance wash rack structure, oil separator and drainage system, turf seeding and supporting infrastructure on approximately one acre of land.
“This federal funding will help us continue to honor the thousands of brave service members from Hawaii who put their lives on the line to serve our country and ensure their legacies are remembered long after they have passed,” said Sen. Schatz.
