Coos County residents receive far more help in federal funds than the national average, according StateImpact NH, a project between NHPR and NPR.

StateImpact’s Amanda Loder examined a recent story in The New York Times that investigated how much help various counties nationwide get from the federal government.

Loder found in New Hampshire Coos County stands out, with residents receiving an average of $10,896 per capita in benefits, compared to $6,583 nationally.
