CONCORD - In the face of soaring energy costs Gov. Chris Sununu on Thursday signed HB 2023, an act making appropriations to the Department of Energy for a state emergency fuel assistance program and a supplemental electric benefit.
The $42 million program is meant to help low-income families with their energy needs this winter after home heating oil and electricity rates in some parts of the state nearly doubled since last winter.
"New Hampshire just delivered the largest energy relief package this state has ever seen, helping families in need this winter - using our state surplus funds," said Sununu.
Sununu thanked Senate President Chuck Morse and Speaker of the House Sherm Packard getting the bill to the governor's desk so quickly.
The benefit allows for a single $450 credit for fuel and $200 electric credit, paid directly to providers.
"Thanks to strong fiscal management, New Hampshire is able to invest state-surplus funds to help families get through this winter," Sununu said.
