The Capital Outlay Bureau of the Department of Finance and Administration is pleased to offer the “Catalog of Local Assistance Programs”. This edition of the catalog contains programs administered by the State of New Mexico and the United States Federal Government; it is intended to assist local entities by way of matching their unique needs and goals with available resources. For additional program assistance, state and federal contact information is provided.
The catalog was originally designed for use specifically by municipalities, counties and other local government entities such as irrigation and water districts. However, the catalog includes a number of programs relevant to Indian tribes, pueblos, non-profits, school districts, special districts, private businesses, and individuals. Although comprehensive, we do not promise the catalog is all-inclusive; therefore, you should inquire with each individual agency regarding changes or the addition of new programs.
Programs vary widely in terms of availability of funds. For example, it is not uncommon for a program to have a fund surplus. This may be due to a lack of program awareness or difficulty meeting program requirements. Some programs provide annual grants to all eligible entities whereas others are highly competitive in granting awards. Loan and grant requirements are under the direction of the agency listed as administering the program. For the purpose of brevity, such requirements are only highlighted in this catalog. Once the reader locates a program that appears to be appropriate to local needs, the administering agency should be contacted for the latest information.
