N.H. receiving anti-smoking Grant
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire is getting a grant to help mobilize children against tobacco.
Kathleen Dunn, director of the state office of Community and Public Health, says the money gives the state a chance to help develop leadership in New Hampshireâ€™s young people and inspire them to stand against tobacco.
The grant of $75,000 to $100,000 from the American Legacy Foundation will be matched by an equal amount of state money.
Specifically, the money will be used to expand youth tobacco prevention programs, develop a web site, train 40 adults to be mentors for local programs and set up a youth summit.
