Community College System seeks money for facilities
The Veterans Home wants to add a third floor to its dementia and Alzheimer’s unit to increase capacity from 100 to 150 beds.
The Community College System also seeks $5 million to improve and update its IT and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) laboratories, $4.5 million for IT updates systemwide and $5 million for a new facility to house its mobile equipment technology program now at its Berlin campus.
At the Technical Institute in Concord, Gittell said the demand exceeds the lab space for both IT and STEM programs and limits future growth.
The $5.5 million for the school will also help develop new online courses and create an online center for counseling and advising students.
The Nashua campus would receive $2.3 million to expand the culinary and hospitality program facility and to begin renovating the main building on campus.
Veterans Home Commandant Margaret LaBrecque said the facility’s 202 beds are filled, including the 100 beds for dementia patients at risk of wandering.
“We are trying to offer beds for those most in need,” LaBrecque said.
Monday, when she opened the hearings, Gov. Maggie Hassan warned state agency heads their requests were going to be reduced.
