In February 2009, Governor Lynch created the New Hampshire Office of Economic Stimulus. The office was created to oversee the use and reporting of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding received by the State of New Hampshire.
A small dedicated staff worked diligently to ensure that the citizens of New Hampshire received maximum benefit from the federal recovery funding, and that the funds received were used to create jobs and protect essential services in New Hampshire.
June 30, 2011 was the last official day of operation for the New Hampshire Office of Economic Stimulus. It has been our pleasure to serve the citizens of New Hampshire.
This website will remain active until December 31, 2011.
