New Hampshire’s Governor’s Office of Emergency Relief and Economic Recovery is allocating $40 million to the state’s cities and towns from the federal CARES Act, Gov. Chris Sununu said Monday.

The money will used to cover COVID-19 related expenses that occurred between March 1 and August 31 of this year, Sununu said.

“These funds will help bridge the gap between what towns have incurred and what FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) will ultimately cover,” Sununu said. “It’s important to note that these funds cannot and are not designed to fill and backfill revenue shortfalls but simply provide relief so cities and towns are not facing the burden of COVID-19 costs.”
