Local and county governments will split $40 million in grants for COVID-19 costs, while all full-time state and local police, firefighters and EMTs will receive a $300-per-week pay bump totaling $25 million.
“We are doing everything we can to show that folks who are putting themselves at risk, we want to be there for them,” Gov. Sununu said Monday as he announced the largest award he has made since the onset of the pandemic.
Both initiatives will come out of the $1.25 billion federal grant given to New Hampshire under the CARES Act Congress approved last month.
