From Concord Patch:

CONCORD - New Hampshire will be the first state in the country to receive new Medicaid grant dollars – $26.5 million over three years – provided by the Affordable Care Act to keep people out of institutions and living productive lives in their communities, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced Friday.
“Thanks to health reform, more seniors and people with disabilities will be able to continue to live in their homes and communities, rather than a nursing home,” said Marilyn Tavenner, acting CMS administrator.” We hope other states will follow New Hampshire’s lead in seeking this new grant money to expand community services and supports.”
