“I’m proud to have allocated $250,000 from my office to ensure Arkansas veterans have a place to lay their heads,” said Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. “Our veterans and service members have given much for our nation so that we may be the land of the free, and we must ensure our brave have a place to call home.”

The Veterans Village project started back in 2017 through a $1 million grant from the Arkansas Department of Finance Administration.

The project is scheduled to be complete in March.
