New Hampshire has spent $6.2 million of its Long Term Care Stabilization Fund, providing 22,500 staff workers with an additional $300 a week in pay, Gov. Chris Sununu announced at his Wednesday news conference.
Sununu announced the fund in April, saying he hoped the money would help retain workers during the coronavirus pandemic. So far, 282 long-term care facilities have applied and more applications are expected, according to the governor. The state plans to spend $5.5 million a week on the program.
