Currently the North Country Health Consortium (NCHC) in Littleton, NH is supported by the State of NH, Division of Public Health Services, DHHS, to provide technical assistance to the Coalition. However, the NH CHW Coalition is a completely independent group that is governed by a member-elected steering committee.
