New Hampshire has received a federal grant of nearly $975,000 for a court handling drug-related offenses in Nashua.
Currently, New Hampshire has six drug courts. Five are in county courts: Strafford, Rockingham, Grafton, Cheshire and Hillsborough South. One is in Laconia District Court.
The grant announced Wednesday is from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Only existing drug courts were eligible for the agency's Treatment Drug Courts enhancement grant, which will be awarded to the state from 2015 to 2017 for nearly $325,000 per year. The grant funds will help the Hillsborough County Drug Court increase treatment access and provide services to more clients.
