Third District U.S. Rep. Lori Trahan recently announced more than $1.5 million in grants for her home district, all of which aid Haverhill.

The lion’s share of the grant went to the Early Head Start Child Care Partnerships, which received over $1.3 million. The program, directed by Haverhill’s Deborah Linett, assists 250 young children and their parents in the region. Services the program provides include meals, wellness checks, and medical screenings.

Additionally, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, which has a satellite campus in Haverhill, took in $120,000 for a project-focused enhancement of robot systems. The Merrimack Valley Planning Commission, based in Haverhill, was also granted $70,000, Trahan’s office said.
