ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A public health and poverty coverage project for KUNM-FM, an NPR member station in Albuquerque, has received another round of funding.

The University of New Mexico announced this week that the public station will continue to receive funding for the Public Health New Mexico project.

The project, which kicked off in 2012, was awarded a $380,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, Michigan for the Public Health New Mexico project.

Elaine Baumgartel, the station’s news director, says the project now is receiving funding from other sources.

KUNM General Manager Richard Towne says the project has helped change the conversation about public health and poverty in New Mexico.

Public Health New Mexico covers the elected officials, policies and agencies responsible for overseeing public health and tackling poverty.
