PORTLAND, Maine — Veterans Affairs facilities in Maine will be receiving more than $14.8 million for infrastructure upgrades and construction under the federal government’s economic stimulus program.

Sen. Susan Collins announced Friday that the money will be shared by the VA hospital at Togus and veterans’ homes in Augusta, Caribou and South Paris.

Collins, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the funding is being distributed in Maine through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
