Grant helps expand support for NH veterans



A grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation will allow Northeast Passage (NEP) at the University of New Hampshire to meet the needs of post-9/11 injured service members and veterans in the Granite State with the hiring of two additional therapists, including one who served four years in the Marine Corps.

“We have not been able to meet the need in New Hampshire,” said Jill Gravink, director of NEP. “Our work with veterans who experience disabilities is growing and developing. With this grant, we can continue to increase the number of veterans served and not turn anyone away. Our goal is to roll this program out nationally, but first we need to meet the need right here. Now we can.”

NEP has been working with veterans for more than 10 years, relying on a variety of funding sources, including the state and national Veteran’s Administration, to help veterans from any era with any disability.
