VA seeking partners for healthcare facility projects

November 22, 2017

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is looking for potential partners who want to support efforts to build healthcare facilities, according to an article on the Medical Construction & Design website.

Public Law 114-294, the Communities Helping Invest through Property and Improvements Needed for Veterans Act of 2016, also known as the “CHIP-IN Act,” authorizes VA to accept donations from up to five non-federal entities to help fund and expedite the construction of healthcare-related capital projects.

A CHIP-IN Act partnership is currently helping to build an ambulatory care center in Omaha, Neb. The arrangement will complete the facility faster than a traditional timeframe and with a reduced tax burden, the article said. 

The RFI, available on the Federal Business Opportunities website, is seeking interest from non-federal entities, including 501(c)(3) nonprofits, private entities and donor groups, for the remaining four partnership opportunities. 

The donations must be real property that includes a constructed facility or that is to be used as the site of a facility constructed by the donor, or a facility to be constructed by the donor on VA-controlled property. Interested parties must respond by Jan. 15, 2018.
