Federal Aid and the Recovery from the COVID-19 Crisis

Join the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute and a panel with key New Hampshire perspectives to discuss 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, will be held on Wednesday, May 19, from 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
