The state has allocated $60 million to create a Nonprofit Emergency Recovery and Relief Fund for New Hampshire nonprofits. The funds are part of the $1.25 billion New Hampshire Coronavirus Relief Fund that was established through the CARES Act.
The NH Center for Center is working with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and the NH Community Development Finance Authority, in consultation with the Governor’s Office for Emergency Relief and Recovery (GOFERR), to administer this fund. Grants will help address lost revenues and/or cover the direct expenses of delivering services to respond to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis, so critical organizations are able to serve New Hampshire through and after the crisis. This program will not be operated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Preliminary information about the fund is posted on GOFERR’s website. Details about the application process are expected to be posted on June 5.
