Division of Community Based Military Programs

Veterans Crisis Line: Call 1-800-273-8255, Press 1

The Bureau of Community Based Military programs was create in 2008 at the Department of Health and Human Services and was the first in a health and human services agency in the country focused on helping to facilitate military and civilian partnerships. Approximately 105,000 veterans live in New Hampshire. A third are from the Vietnam Era, and over 48% are 65 years of age or older, compared with 15% of the civilian population. The second largest group of veterans is from the Gulf Wars, with over 7,000 coming from post-9/11 service. Only 30,000 of these 110,000 veterans utilize a VA Medical Center, which is a prime example of why we need to engage the civilian sector in service to our veterans.

In 2019, the Bureau of CMBP moved to the Department of Military Affairs and Veterans Services and became the Division of CMBP. The Division of CMBP will continue to work closely with DHHS and will be embedded in the operations of the Division of Long Term Supports and Services.

New Hampshire is recognized nationally for having strong military and civilian partnerships throughout the State, and the NH Department of Health and Human Services is actively engaged in encouraging civilian health care providers to learn more about military culture in order to better serve this population. Our mission is to collaborate, coordinate, and communicate with military and civilian provider groups in the delivery of health care services to New Hampshire veterans, service members, and their families.
