Resources & Guidance

For life threatening emergencies, please dial 911. 

We are here as a community to support one another through this time. We encourage everyone to maintain their hope, faith, and trust in those working to keep our community safe and healthy. We need to work together to STOP the spread of COVID-19. Essential services and resources are still available and we encourage them to continue to be used if needed.

Education

Staying home to keep yourself, your family, and your community healthy? We thank you! We also understand that staying home for an extended period of time and avoiding close contact with others can be challenging. Although the Nashua Public Library is closed, online resources are still available. You can visit online and use your library card to stream free video or download e-books, audio books, and magazines. If you don’t have a library card yet, sign up for a library card online on their website for a temporary card that will give you immediate access to online services.

Employment

If you have lost work due to COVID-19, you may be eligible for unemployment relief, even if you are self-employed. Find out if you are eligible for benefits online. If you are looking for employment opportunities, search at NH Job Match System.

Temporary Housing

The State of NH has temporary housing solutions for the general public. To ensure the health and safety of our community, Isolation and Quarantine sites are available for individuals who are able to provide for their own general needs. They will need a medical referral to access placement. These housing services can be arranged by calling (603) 415-1624 or filling out this referral form and emailing it to GSHCC@healthynh.org.

Assistance with Rent, Mortgage, and Utilities

If you are falling behind with your rent, mortgage or utilities, reach out for help now. NH Governor Chris Sununu modified Emergency Order #4 to make it clear that if tenants and property owners can’t pay rent or mortgage now, they will still have to pay in full when the state of emergency is lifted. All tenants who have difficulty paying rent are encouraged to talk with their landlord to develop a payment plan and pay what they can at this time. The same applies for utility assistance. If you are struggling with paying your utility bills, talk with your utility company to make a payment plan.
