The Northwood Human Services Office provides assistance to qualified individuals for basic living needs in accordance with NH RSA 165 and the Town of Northwood General Assistance Guidelines and Basic Needs Policy.  The Town of Northwood Human Services Guidelines were established to ensure that those residents who have a need for financial assistance can obtain funding from the Town in an appropriate manner.  The objective is to provide assistance to those who qualify and to assist them in obtaining long-term financial security through other available resources.
