CONCORD — A $250,000 federal grant will assist two North Country groups in improving access to food.
The Northern Forest Center and the Northern Community Investment Corporation will use the funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Congresswoman Annie Kuster says the grant will help boost local economies and increase access to natural foods grown in New Hampshire.
The program supports private, nonprofit community-based housing and community development organizations, and low-income rural communities.
