Education Funding in the 2022-2023 State Budget

New Hampshire’s public schools are facing a steep drop in state funding, partially due to pandemic-related enrollment fluctuations. Proposals brought forth by House budget writers would close roughly $18 million of the $89 million gap in state funding between 2021 and 2022, while the Senate has proposed a measure that would add back about $45 million. Read our policy brief to learn more, or download the town-by-town analysis to get more information on the House proposal and SB 135.

Note: The town-by-town analysis is *before* SWEPT and Stabilization is factored in, meaning that the calculated aid increase for towns that collect excess SWEPT may, in practice, be covered by the excess SWEPT. These communities are highlighted in yellow in the spreadsheet.
