MANCHESTER, NH – Last Spring the federal government gave the state of New Hampshire $1.25 billion to help with the COVID-19 crisis. To slow the rate of evictions due to COVID-19, New Hampshire committed $35 million to be given to households in need of financial help to stay in their homes.
Since then, over $6 millionof this has gone to families unable to pay their rent, mortgage, or utility bills. As things now stand the remaining $28 million must be spent by the end of December or it goes back to the federal government.
You can still get this money—which is a grant you can keep, not a loan you have to pay back—but you have to apply for it no later than Dec. 18, 2020.
