Plymouth, N.H. – This afternoon, Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02) met with Harbor Care staff in Plymouth to hear updates and tour Boulder Point Veterans Housing. Later in the day, she joined Mid-State Health Center to recognize National Health Center Week, hear first-hand from clinicians and CHC leadership, and discuss critical funding for CHC’s included in the American Rescue Plan.

“Community Health Centers are a lifeline for Granite Staters, not only helping to care for vulnerable citizens but serving as a critical link to our economic and public health vitality,” said Rep. Kuster. “I look forward to sharing the stories I heard today with my colleagues when I return to Washington.”

“Harbor Care has done an incredible job in designing transitional, supportive, and affordable housing programs for veterans,” Rep. Kuster continued. “The American Rescue Plan furthers their important work and is the most consequential legislation I have voted for during my time in Congress. It provides funding for supportive services, direct housing, and nutritional assistance and bolsters our nationwide vaccine rollout. In Congress, I remain committed to ensuring veterans have the necessary resources throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Harbor Care’s facility at Boulder Point demonstrates our commitment to effectively end Veteran homelessness,” said David Tille, Director of Veteran Services, Veterans FIRST, Harbor Care. “Harbor Care will continue its commitment with the support of community partners and elected officials at state and federal levels.  We thank you Congresswoman Kuster for her support with this effort.” 

The Kuster-backed American Rescue Plan includes critical investments in our Granite State Community Health Centers and housing services, including $7.6 billion in funding for community health centers and $800 million for the National Health Service Corps.
