Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 2558, Nursing Home Care for Native American Veterans Act   [open pdf - 31KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs on August 5, 2020. From the Document: "S. 2558 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to make grants to Indian tribes to defray the cost of constructing veterans' nursing homes on tribal land and to pay a portion of the costs of care provided at those facilities. Under current law, VA pays 65 percent of construction costs for state-operated nursing homes for veterans and subsidizes residents' care. Over the 2017-2019 period, VA provided about $300 million in construction grants for 30 new state veterans homes (roughly $8 million per grant), and it spent $1.2 billion annually on care for veterans living in existing facilities."
