NH CARES funding is for salary and facilities costs of nonprofit cultural organizations impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding category recognizes that the nonprofit arts industry is an important sector of New Hampshire’s economy, and that financial support is necessary to help save jobs and keep operations functioning for organizations that add value to the creative life of our communities. NH CARES funds are intended to help these entities and their employees endure the economic hardships caused by the pandemic and to expedite the distribution of critical funds to a broad constituency and geographic range, as quickly as possible.
