New Hampshire's Congressional Delegation welcomed a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) headed to Campus Compact for NH (CCNH).
This award is allocated through the DOE’s Statewide Family Engagement Centers Program and will support CCNH’s efforts to engage family networks and support students’ academic success across Carroll, Coos, Grafton and Hillsborough counties – with a particular focus on the North Country and Manchester.
The NH Statewide Family Engagement Center is designed to produce results statewide while focusing intensively on moving outcomes in two areas of the state – the North Country and Manchester. This project will create a system of family engagement supports for parents, communities, and stakeholders by proving support to children as they grow, develop, and move through the cradle-to-career continuum, said Stephanie Lesperance, Chief Strategy Officer at Campus Compact for NH. “Campus Compact for NH is looking forward to expanding and deepening our work in the North Country and Manchester while sharing lessons learned across the state.”
“I’m thrilled to see these federal funds headed to Campus Compact for NH to support students through innovative programs that bolster students’ success in the classroom by engaging their families and communities,” said US Senator Jeanne Shaheen. “This investment in Granite State students so early-on – and the partnership of teachers and families each step of the way – will advance critical life skills for students of all ages. I’ll continue to advocate for federal funding to make sure Granite State students have the resources necessary to learn and lead fulfilling lives.”
“Robust family engagement programs help our students succeed in the classroom and in every facet of their lives,” said US Senator Maggie Hassan. “I am glad to announce federal funding to Campus Compact for NH’s program that will use evidence-based practices to support our students in each step of their academic career. I will continue to work to make sure that Granite State students can succeed.”
“These federal funds for Campus Compact for NH will help support students and their families, setting them up for success – whether they are just beginning their education, or pursing education opportunities beyond K-12,” said Representative Annie Kuster. “This is an important investment in Granite State families and the future of our children and young adults, and I look forward to seeing the positive benefits of this program, especially throughout the North Country.”
“It’s critical that all Granite State students receive a quality education,” said Representative Chris Pappas. “These federal funds will support students, parents, teachers, and our entire education community to create new, innovative opportunities for future generations. I remain committed to doing all that I can to support educational programs like this one so everyone in NH has the opportunity to get ahead.”
