New Hampshire is eligible to receive more than $618,000 in federal aid to reimburse schools that took in students displaced by hurricanes and wildfires last year.

The funds are part of a nearly $360 million package in new federal assistance being given to 20 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The U.S. Department of Education is awarding funds to state agencies that will then make payments to local school districts.

New Hampshire is eligible to receive per-pupil aid amounts of between $2,125 and $2,500 per displaced student.

New Hampshire had between 22 and 99 displaced students attending classes in the state at various times during the previous school year due to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and wildfires in California.
