The Forum on the State Budget Shortfall & Impact to Human Services, that was originally scheduled for March 9 and cancelled, due to weather, has been  rescheduled for Thursday, April 14 at 3:30 PM, at the Plymouth State University Savage Welcome Center and Ice Arena.

Forum on Budget Shortfall & Impact to Social Services. Thu April 14 3:30 PM. Savage Welcome Center & Ice Arena at Plymouth State University.

Development of New Hampshire’s next biennial budget is under way and proposed and potential cuts to services will be felt locally.  Jeff McLynch of the NH Fiscal Policy Institute will outline the history of New Hampshire’s legislative state budgeting process and the challenge of funding state services.  He will discuss the state’s tax structure, why the state faces a budget shortfall and what options the legislature has to address it–now and in the future.

The process of creating and passing a state budget is complicated. If you’d like to learn more about it and, more specifically, about the anticipated effects on the Pemi-Baker region, we encourage you to attend this community forum.

The forum is free and is sponsored by NHcares, an organization of human service providers focused on the need to maintain and strengthen the safety net for our most vulnerable citizens.  The event is hosted by the Center for Rural Partnerships at Plymouth State University.

Questions and RSVPs should be sent to:
