New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors Appoints
AnnMarie French Interim Executive Director

 

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors has appointed AnnMarie French to serve as interim executive director of the organization, effective Monday, December 4, 2017.

AnnMarie assumes the role of interim executive director following the departure of John Shea, who resigned from the role of executive director on December 1.

“The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s Board is so appreciative of AnnMarie’s commitment and dedication to the organization over the years,” said Mil Duncan, chair of the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors. “AnnMarie’s ability to think strategically about the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s role, her history with our work and our partners, and her contacts across the state make her the ideal person to lead the organization as we move through this transition.“

AnnMarie has served as the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s communications manager since joining the organization in January 2014. As interim executive director, AnnMarie will oversee the organization’s operations, communications, and public policy research.

The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors will initiate a search for a new executive director in early 2018.

The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute is an independent non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to exploring, developing, and promoting public policies that foster economic opportunity and prosperity for all New Hampshire residents, with an emphasis on low- and moderate-income families and individuals.

New Hampshire Expands Access to Safety Net Programs and Supports During the COVID-19 Crisis

3 Apr 2020

Programs such as Medicaid, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provide means-tested benefits that help support the basic needs of individuals and families with low incomes. During these times of profound economic instability, assistance to families and individuals living at or near the poverty line, along with those who have experienced sudden large drops in income, is indispensable. Strengthening the safety net, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced temporary changes, beginning April 1, 2020, to certain administrative aspects of these programs at the State level. In addition to other emergency federal and state-level changes to unemployment benefits, the changes to these safety net programs expand access to targeted assistance for individuals and families during the COVID-19 crisis.
