BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Department of Veterans Affairs has agreed to spend up to $50 million to help rebuild warring neighborhoods in the Bronx after the death of an American-born soldier.
The Department of Defense said in a statement Tuesday that it will spend $75 million on the Bronx, where former Navy SEAL, Sgt. 1st Class David W. Womack, was killed last year.
The Army said in the statement that it would also invest $30 million to repair and upgrade schools and other infrastructure in the city.
The $50-million effort comes after the Trump administration announced in February that it is funding more than $600 million to rebuild infrastructure across the country.
