New Hampshire Legal Assistance Receives $195,000 Grant from Point32Health FoundationPosted Feb 24, 2022
New Hampshire Legal Assistance (NHLA) was awarded a three-year, $195,000 grant from Point32Health Foundation to support the statewide advocacy movement focused on the health and wellbeing of older Granite Staters.
“We are extremely grateful to Point32Health for its generous support," said Cheryl Steinberg, New Hampshire Legal Assistance Justice in Aging project director. "This vital funding will enable us to continue our advocacy efforts to enhance the health and wellbeing of Granite Staters as they age.”
NHLA leads the New Hampshire Alliance for Healthy Aging’s (NH AHA) advocacy initiatives and collaborates with New Futures to improve health and wellness through policy change. This grant will support work to address long-term care, housing, transportation and other challenges facing older people and caregivers.
Building on the legacy of service and giving established by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and Tufts Health Plan Foundation, Point32Health Foundation works with communities to support, advocate and advance healthier lives for everyone. This is one of 10 new community investments to organizations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island totaling more than $1.1 million. The grants support community-led solutions to remove barriers that perpetuate inequities and advance policies and practices that create more inclusive communities.
“The pandemic has revealed significant gaps in our transportation, housing and food systems that disproportionately affect older people and communities of color,” said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of Point32Health Foundation and vice president for corporate citizenship at Point32Health. “To create communities that work for everyone, policies should honor and reflect community voices.”
