The state of Illinois will be upgrading veterans' homes around the state.
Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza visited the Illinois Veterans’ Home in Anna to highlight the renovation projects.
As part of the nearly $3 million project, Mendoza said the entire HVAC ventilation system at the facility will be replaced.
“Right now those HVAC units are well past their due date and we want to make sure that the air that our residents are breathing here is clean and filtered,” Mendoza said Friday.
The facility will also be getting new windows that can be opened from the inside.
