NH has much less poverty and

NH has much less poverty and much lower poverty rates than most states. So while yes, there are lots of people on various forms on welfare, that is common in all states. It's just less common in NH. It might be hard to tell that because likely when you visit other states you don't visit the worst parts of them.

NH's child poverty rate is the lowest at 10%. "At the higher end of the child poverty distribution, the rates for Alabama,Arkansas, and Louisiana were estimated at 27.3 percent to 27.7
percent.13 Mississippi, New Mexico, and the District of Columbia had
child poverty rates of 30.0 percent to 32.5 percent."
