New Hampshire has expended about half, or $500 million, of its first installment of $994 million in American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 pandemic relief funding

So far, New Hampshire has expended about half, or $500 million, of its first installment of $994 million in American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 pandemic relief funding. An upcoming expenditure will go toward increasing the number of housing units across the Granite State, with a focus on multi-family housing. To date, the state has also put $23 million toward state parks for infrastructure and improvements. Many parks investments will be one-time upgrades, such as addressing deferred maintenance,  as well as accommodating increased usage as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. For ARPA funding, New Hampshire has received about half of what the federal government has committed to, and the second installment is expected within the next few months.
