COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) — Two community health centers in New Hampshire are getting federal money to expand their services.

Indian Stream Health Center in Colebrook and Mid-State Health Center in Plymouth are getting more than $1.2 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The money, which is part of the federal health care overhaul law, is expected to help the centers open new delivery sites serving an additional 13,400 patients.

The Colebrook center serves 10 communities in northern New Hampshire, seven in Vermont and two in Maine. Mid-State has offices in Plymouth and Bristol.

They are among 236 centers nationwide receiving $150 million in funding.
