Monadnock Ledger-Transcript – Lawmakers pass COVID’s first round of federal bailout money

  Mental health services is expected to be an area the state prioritizes with its rescue plan spending. Under this initial allotment, $21 million is targeted to Health and Human services for that purpose. These articles are being shared by partners in The Granite State News Collaborative.

The state has estimated the costs of investigating and prosecuting the abuse cases could reach $2 million. Formella told the committee he believes using federal aid to offset those coast will pass muster with the federal government if the state attributes the need to lost revenue due to the pandemic. “I just wonder if there is a risk in doing this,” D’Allesandro asked New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella. “Could there be a clawback?”

The largest allocation of this initial installment of federal American Rescue Plan money – $50 million – is earmarked for water projects across the state. Another $30 million will be spent on state cybersecurity and pandemic-related computer hardware and software. Close to $25 million would address deferred maintenance of state properties, and $23 million would pay for infrastructure projects in state recreation areas. Committee members, including Manchester Sen. Lou D’Allesandro questioned whether this last item was a valid use of the federal funds, which are eventually expected to total nearly $1 billion over the next two years.
