Housing Assistance Fund for Incoming or Established Residents of NHCORR-Certified Recovery Homes
Housing Assistance Notice 8/22/23
NHCORR is experiencing an unprecedented, overwhelming number of applications for housing assistance. The State of NH, through DHHS and the Governor's Council on Alcohol and other Drugs, along with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and other organizations, has been generously supporting this program and continues to do so. With these funds, NHCORR has awarded a total of one million to approximately 2,000 people for housing assistance since the inception of the program in March of 2020. This would not be possible without the generous support of the State of NH, DHHS, the NH Charitable Foundation and others. NHCORR's small team of three continues to advocate for funding with these organizations and others to secure additional sources of funding for this program. However, the response is overwhelming. If you find your application for housing assistance is not granted, please contact 211 for further assistance.
