Holding those who are continuing and exacerbating the substance use disorder crisis in our communities to account is a key part of our strategy to turn the tide on this crisis, and these federal dollars will be put to good use to achieve that goal.

It’s shameful that we’re in a position where we need to circumvent the Republican-controlled governing bodies to secure this assistance because of the partisan obsession over controlling women’s health.

But we can’t limit our action to the immediate problems of today – we also need an eye towards the future.

Maggie Hassan said ( about Granite State ) : “Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, what gives me hope is the all-hands-on-deck spirit and generosity that I have seen from so many Granite Staters who have stepped up to help their friends, neighbors, and communities in need. Volunteer programs throughout our state have played an important role in this, connecting Granite Staters willing to help with those who could use it. The Friends Program in Concord is one of these critical groups, and I am very pleased that they will receive this grant so that their Retired and Senior Volunteer (RSVP) Program can continue to thrive,” External link

That is why this funding for the Retired and Senior Volunteer (RSVP) Program through AmeriCorps couldn’t come at a more important time,” “This funding will provide those who are 55 and over with enriching volunteer experiences that will also help meet critical community needs. I remain committed to working with New Hampshire’s congressional delegation to provide additional support for older Granite Staters throughout this pandemic and beyond” External link
