AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Maine is getting $300,000 to boost mental health and other health care services for veterans that live in rural areas.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud announced the grant in a statement on Thursday.

Michaud says the grants will be used to enhance systems that allow Maine Health Care providers to electronically communicate with veterans who live far away in rural areas of the state.
