COVID-19 Data

The Division of Economic & Housing Stability (DEHS) is tracking data for trends related to COVID-19 in an effort to learn how the pandemic is impacting the economic condition of the individuals and families we serve. This is an evolving document that will be updated the 2nd and 4th week of each month. DEHS will be adding to what is presented, as we expand the information we collect related to COVID-19.


The New Hampshire Employment Program (NHEP) is an employment support program that provides cash assistance to eligible families with able-bodied parents and assists those parents in becoming self-sufficient by promoting work through the provision of employment support and training services.

Individuals participating in the program work with Employment Counselor Specialists who provide employment and training services at the DHHS District Offices around the state. These counselors work with participants to assess their skills and abilities and develop an individualized employment plan. It is through that employment plan that employment related activities and support services are made available to participants, either through the New Hampshire Employment Program, or other community services.

The NHEP participant may also complete the Job Readiness Module Series along with its associated job readiness activities approved by the NHEP Work Verification Plan to support vocational assessment and career pathway planning as tools for long-term success for NHEP clients. Employment related activities can include:
