VA to Dispose Of Or Reuse Vacant Buildings Within 24 Months

Following through on a key promise from less than a month ago, Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Dr. David J. Shulkin today announced a plan to dispose of all vacant VA buildings in 24 months (either by demolishing or setting for reuse).

Dr. Shulkin had raised the vacant building issue as a priority in his “State of the VA” address delivered at the White House on May 31.

Nationwide, VA currently has 430 vacant or mostly vacant buildings that are on average more than 60 years old, and cost taxpayers more than $7 million per year to maintain.
