The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a Federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans, including elderly people, by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost.
TCCAP oversees food distribution in local communities throughout Coos and Grafton counties. The foods distributed go to local food pantries and soup kitchens, social service agency programs with food programs and Head Start programs.
NHCarePath is a new initiative where community partners work collaboratively to connect individuals to the supports and services that they may need and ensure a consistent experience for individuals seeking assistance. Multiple statewide partners collaborate as part of NHCarePath, including the NH Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS), ServiceLink Aging and Disability Resource Centers, Area Agencies offering developmental services and Community Mental Health Centers: with the goal of making it easier for NH residents to find the help they need.
