Gov. Chris Sununu on Tuesday announced he is establishing three new funding pools using money from the federal CARES Act.
During a news conference, Sununu said the state will allocate $5 million for children’s services, $6 million for those struggling with mental health or substance-use issues and $7 million for assistance to veterans.
Sununu also announced he would extend, until July 31, an earlier emergency order that offers $300 weekly stipends for workers in long-term care facilities and other Medicaid-funded organizations. The stipend, which is also funded with CARES Act money, first went into effect in mid-April.
