THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED HARD WORK AND DEDICATION SUPPORTING THE MEN AND WOMEN THAT DEPEND UPON THE CRITICAL CARE AND SERVICES YOU PROVIDE.



 

In response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, Governor Sununu has established the COVID-19 Long Term Care Stabilization (LTCS) Program to help stabilize front line work that is not able to be conducted remotely, of certain Medicaid providers that support aging seniors, people with developmental disabilities, individuals with mental health and substance abuse disorders, children at risk, and developmental disability service providers that provide residential or community/home based care. The program will provide temporary stabilization funding to incentivize front line, direct care workers to remain or rejoin this critical workforce during the COVID-19 Emergency. This will help ensure that these critical staff that support some of New Hampshire’s most vulnerable persons get uninterrupted care during the COVID-19 Emergency.

If you are a Medicaid service provider in any of these critical areas of care, the LTCS PROGRAM is here to help you RETAIN your critical front line staff as well as RECRUIT additional front line staff to assist in your ability to continue to provide high quality care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

To apply for a LTCS Payment please submit your completed application to New Hampshire Employment Security at LTCSPAYMENT@NHES.NH.GOV
