    ♦The New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty has created a comprehensive source of information about assistance - and New Mexicans’ rights to access it - available across the state now and in the future.

    The guide includes information about programs funded through federal legislation like the American Recovery Plan Act, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, as well as long-standing state and local programs that can help families with food, housing, healthcare, child care, and more. Access the resource guide here:  http://nmpovertylaw.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/NMCLP-COVID-Guide.pdf

    ♦The New Mexico Association of Grantmakers (NMAG) has compiled a list of resources that can be accessed at New Mexico's Philanthropic Response for COVID-19 .

    There are a number of programs that non-profits can apply for under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The National Council of Non-Profits has a handy chart regarding loan options, eligibility, and application info here.  Another resource rich site for small business owners and eligible non-profits is the Small Business Administration.
