Advocacy and Public Policy

The Home Care, Hospice & Palliative Care Alliance of New Hampshire advocates on behalf of home care agencies and the clients we serve through our affiliate, the Granite State Home Health Association.  State House advocacy is coordinated by the Association’s CEO and our lobbying firm, Sheehan Phinney Capitol Group.  Federal advocacy is coordinated by the Association’s CEO in collaboration  with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice and the Visiting Nurse Associations of America.

Legislative positions are guided by a Legislative Policy Statement that recommended by our Legislative Committee and approved annually by the Association’s Board of Directors.

Get involved! Follow state and local issues by joining the legislative committee!


New Hampshire is an important state for any candidate’s road to the White House. At town meetings, candidate forums or even parades YOU have the opportunity to bring health care issues front and center.
