Deadline: May 9, 2018

PNM is committed to building a better future for New Mexico. Creating economic opportunity and ensuring that children get a good education are critical to achieving success and improving the quality of life for all. In 2017, PNM celebrated 100 years of serving New Mexico by awarding grants to organizations that promote economic development and education. Continuing the centennial celebration in 2018, grants will be awarded to the projects that best enhance local communities and provide the broadest possible benefit.

  • Support businesses, job growth, workforce training, and economic development in New Mexico

  • Promote environmental stewardship and resource conservation

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • Lead PNM communities to a brighter future

  • Show tangible, near-term results
  • Are sustainable or have a clear path to sustainability
  • Have a clear plan to build awareness about the project and its value within the community
