CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire has been selected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for pilot projects to provide transitional housing for people recovering from substance abuse disorders.

The two projects are part of a USDA initiative that emerged from Secretary Tom Vilsack’s visit to New Hampshire in May, where he visited Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua to hear about its drug court program.

The projects make financing available for the construction, expansion and improvement of transitional housing facilities and encourage qualified nonprofits to purchase single-family homes and multi-family properties exiting USDA’s Real Estate Owned housing program.
