Kuster announces grant for Family Resource Center
GORHAM – The Family Resource Center in Gorham has been awarded a $9,000 federal Rural Development grant.
U.S. Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) announced the grant to the center was one of two Rural Development grant awarded in her district. The other award, for $22,500, went to the Davis Public Library and town of Stoddard.
The Family Resource Center works to support the health and economic well being of families in the North Country. The Family Resource Center's $9,000 grant will be used to purchase computers and update its currently obsolete electronic equipment in order to provide better resources for the communities that rely on the center's services.
"I'm a long-time supporter of USDA Rural Development's grant programs, which bolster local efforts to provide economic development support for our Granite State families and businesses in rural areas," said Kuster. "Updating electronic infrastructure is vitally important for organizations that provide job-search assistance and career training, and I'm proud to announce these grants, which will help ensure local community members can access the services they need to learn about new career growth opportunities."
