NH Employment Program Relocates to DHHS District Offices

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Division of Family Assistance (DFA) is announcing the NH Employment Program (NHEP) is relocating to DHHS’ District Offices. The NHEP is both a financial assistance program and an employment support program and was being coordinated at New Hampshire’s Employment Security Offices.

“Moving the NHEP to our field offices will help provide clients with better coordinated access to DHHS services,” said DFA Director Terry Smith. “This will reduce the number of trips clients must make to separate offices; now they’ll be able to apply for the assistance they need at one location instead of two.”

NHEP helps families become self-supporting by providing employment opportunities, job readiness, education, and training services. People who participate in the program work with Employment Counselor Specialists who provide employment and training services at DHHS District Offices around the State.

The NHEP moves are scheduled throughout the month of June. As a result the NHEP will be closed the day of and day after the moves.
