NH DHHS - NH Commission on PTSD and TBI to Award Grants 

$10,000 Veterans Grant to Serve  New Hampshire’s Institutions of Higher Education 

The NH Legislative Commission on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), in partnership with and sponsorship from LTC Partners, is providing a $10,000 grant opportunity to New Hampshire’s institutions of higher education to support our State’s military population.    

This Military or Veterans Impacting New Generations (MOVING) Experience will award three grants (one for $5,000 and two for $2,500 each) for innovative and inclusive proposals to enhance and support the educational and campus experience of veterans.    

“These grants represent the impact that New Hampshire’s institutions of higher education have on our State’s veterans, service members and their families,” said Jo Moncher, Bureau Chief of Military Programs for the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and Chair of the Commission on PTSD and TBI.  “The Commission is honored to partner with LTC Partners on this important initiative and look forward to working with New Hampshire’s institutions of higher education as we develop new programs to serve our State’s military.”   

The initiative will follow the goals identified by the Commission: stigma reduction, military education, and military-civilian integrated care. 

The application deadline is April 15, 2015, and award recipients will be announced on June 1, 2015.  Implementation of the grant award programs will take place July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016.  The application and guidelines can be found on www.nh.gov/nhveterans

NHDP - Marilinda Garcia, Mike Pence and the Tea Party Fight Against Early Childhood Education 

Governor Pence Passes on Funding for Early Education in Indiana to Campaign in New Hampshire With Marilinda Garcia Who Voted to Repeal Public Kindergarden
Manchester, NH – As Marilinda Garcia welcomes fellow Tea Party conservative Indiana Governor Mike Pence to New Hampshire, she underscores both of their records on early education that side against the priorities of middle-class families, especially when it comes to access to affordable early education.

“It's only appropriate that Marilinda Garcia is rolling out the carpet for fellow Tea Party conservative Governor Mike Pence to join her on the campaign trail, as both candidates have long records of siding against middle-class priorities, especially when it comes to expanding access to affordable early education for hard-working families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Bryan Lesswing. “Pence is passing on funding for early childhood education in Indiana to instead make a trip to New Hampshire and campaign with Garcia, who voted as a state representative in favor of repealing public kindergarden and even voted against the measure that would have prevented further consideration of the bill.”

As a State Representative in 2011, Garcia voted in favor of repealing public kindergarten (HB631). She even doubled down to vote against the measure that would have prevented further consideration of the bill.

In a recent report, Governor Pence tossed plans to submit a grant for $80 million in pre-school funding that would have helped thousands of Hoosier middle-class families to instead “help other GOP leaders with issues in their states,” according to Pence's spokesperson. 

“By embracing anti-early education figures like Mike Pence, Marilinda Garcia makes it further clear that she's only interested in pushing her out-of-touch Tea Party views that would devastate Granite State middle-class families,” added Lesswing.
