HNH Foundation Awards $580,561 to Improve the Health of New Hampshire Children

Concord – The HNH Foundation awarded $580,561 in grants during its Fall 2016 program cycle, bringing the total awarded in 2016 to over $1.1 million. The awards benefited 6 health-related initiatives and projects at non-profit and community organizations across the state.

The HNH Foundation makes grants to address change to affect the health of New Hampshire’s youngest and most vulnerable children and their families. Grants awarded in Fall 2016 included support for Families First (Seacoast area) to expand trauma support services for parents, the NH Public Health Association (statewide) on behalf of the NH Oral Health Coalition, , The Granite YMCA (Manchester) for staff training in early learning centers, and Vital Communities (Grafton and Sullivan counties) to promote access to locally-grown food at farmers markets for low income families.

According to HNH Foundation President Gail Garceau, these grants address the Foundation’s core mission: “We seek to support innovative ways to advance our funding priorities and we recognize that broad, strategic collaboration is critical to making a long-term impact in communities throughout New Hampshire. One example is a statewide grant awarded to New Futures in Fall 2016 to provide support for the NH Advocacy Hub, a new and innovation centralized organization made up of early childhood experts and advocates who can collaborate on public policy and social change.”
