N.B. This is not an official State of NH Web page. The data herein may be wrong, stale, or worse. Check the official pile of numbers before committing to any action from data you find here.
The NH State Budget is "readily" available at http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/lba/operating_budget.html as a 518 page Word .doc or .zip file or as a .pdf file. I assume that's also 518 pages long. Of that, there are some 10,000 account numbers and names. All in all, it's not the most browsable of documents. There are some summaries available too, but I haven't checked them yet.
As public service (and an excuse to hack up a Python CGI script), I put all the line items in a database and wrote a retrieval system to follow the branches of the budget bush.
It's under development still, but it appears useful in its current form. You can start at the top or follow one of these links to start on a first level branch or DCYF unit.
To descend deeper into the budget, click on links in the "name" column. To see a relevant portion of the the budget text, click on links in the "fy2005" column. That text often has footnotes or a better breakdown of the money sources, so it's worth checking. In fact, the entire text of the budget is in those 1172 links.
