CONCORD — Nearly two-dozen non-profit and community organizations across New Hampshire are benefiting from grants aimed at improving the health of the state's children.
The HNH foundation says it awarded just under $975,000 in 2015. Some of that was used to improve access to health and dental insurance coverage, increase the affordability of locally-grown food and expand the state's capacity to help infants and young children experiencing trauma.
The foundation's president, Gail Garceau, says many of the grants focused on policy, system and environmental changes to achieve those goals.
