The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute and a panel with key New Hampshire perspectives discussed the implications of the recently-enacted federal American Rescue Plan Act, and the aid available to New Hampshire to support the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic has resulted in profound challenges for many Granite Staters, and sustained assistance will be needed to help ensure residents struggling most during the recovery are able to make ends meet.
This online presentation, Federal Aid and the Recovery from the COVID-19 Crisis, was held on Wednesday, May 19, from 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
NHFPI Senior Policy Analyst Phil Sletten and Policy Analyst Michael Polizzotti provided an overview of the recently enacted American Rescue Plan Act, how the Act may interact with services funded through the State’s policy and budget, and the recovery thus far. Following this presentation, a panel discussion highlighted and considered needs in key areas and opportunities created by this new funding to create a more inclusive and equitable economic recovery.
