CONCORD – Today, Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) introduced SB 140 to the Senate Health and Human Services Committee. SB 140 makes two appropriations to the Department of Health and Human Services – the first to increase homeless shelter case management services and the second for primary prevention services for families.


After the hearing, prime sponsor Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement:

“Before the COVID-19 pandemic, New Hampshire saw a 21% increase in people experiencing homelessness, including over 300 school aged children in Nashua. More than ever, we must make significant investments in our homeless shelter system by enhancing case management. SB 140 also appropriates funds to our family resource centers so that they can continue delivering essential primary prevention services and in turn, decrease the need for DCYF involvement. While SB 140 was originally intended to expand services, it is now a crucial funding measure as the Governor has zeroed out funding for our family resource centers in his budget proposal, gutting the facilitation and promotion of primary prevention and early intervention efforts.”
