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.
