How are the programs and services provided by different levels of New Hampshire government funded?
What role does the state have in funding these programs and services?
Many people think of the property tax as a primary funding source, but there are a range of other revenue streams that we rely on to fund public services such as education, child care and protection, public safety and health, roads and bridges, and environmental programs. Public services at the state level are funded through a collection of tax, fee, and enterprise revenue sources, with different degrees of variation due to economic cycles. Federal funds also support a broad range of programs and services at the state and local levels.
Join New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s Policy Analyst Phil Sletten and NHMA’s Government Finance Advisor Barbara Reid for this presentation, which will explain the primary revenue sources we rely on to fund public services in New Hampshire and some key policy decisions that have had effects on state and local revenues. It will also review the interplay with federal funds and the impact potential federal budget decisions could have on public services here in New Hampshire. There will be ample time for audience question and answer session.
This webinar is open to members of the New Hampshire Municipal Association.
