The state of New Mexico will grant approximately $170M of federal aid to New Mexicans for rental and utility assistance to households experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) will administer the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) in partnership with the City of Albuquerque. New Mexicans can apply for assistance at beginning April 5, 2021.

Legal Resources: Even when there isn't a pandemic, a lot of Civil Legal issues come up and we have questions and we don't always have the wherewithal to deal with them. The New Mexico Commission on Access to Justice has a number of resources that can help, including topics such as elder care. The New Mexico State Library has put together a  guide  to much of the information as well. If you need forms, try here.
