$595M in NH relief money announced; lawmakers to return in June
Governor Chris Sununu says more money will be available for New Hampshire’s small businesses and nonprofits in federal coronavirus relief funds than recommended by a legislative advisory board, with a total amount of $595 million going to wide-ranging needs in the state.
The money will come from New Hampshire’s $1.25 billion in relief aid received last month. About $255 million has already been spent. After the latest amount is distributed, about $400 million would be left to use by the rest of the year.
Also, state lawmakers are returning for legislative sessions in June, but meeting outside of their respective chambers at the Statehouse - the first time since the Civil War.
