Colebrook Hospital, Grafton incubator receive grants

October 17th, 2013 by Lynn

    CONCORD — The Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook and the Grafton County Economic Development Council in Plymouth will receive grants totaling nearly $350,000 from the Northern Border Regional Commission.

    New Hampshire’s northernmost hospital will use its $200,000 grant toward replacing its aging cardiac monitoring system, which can no longer be serviced with replacement parts. UCVH will match the grant to cover the $372,000 replacement cost.

    The Grafton County Economic Development Council, which is receiving $145,000, will use the funding to complete construction of its Enterprise Center at Plymouth, being developed in conjunction with Plymouth State University. The total cost of the project is $290,000.

    The Northern Border Regional Commission was created as a federal-state partnership approved in the 2008 Farm Bill.

    It addresses economic and community development needs in distressed communities in the Northern Forest region, which includes New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and New York.
