The North Central New Mexico Economic Development District (NCNMEDD) is the regional Council of Governments for local governments in Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, Taos, Colfax, Mora, San Miguel, Los Alamos, and Sandoval counties. Established in 1967, NCNMEDD assists local governments with community and economic development projects and initiatives. We serve as the conduit for U.S. Economic Development Administration funding and manage the Northern Pueblos and North East Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs). NCNMEDD also oversees the Non-Metro Area Agency on Aging (AAA), which administers senior services for the entire state of New Mexico outside of Bernalillo County.

To combat difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic our office has compiled a list of resources available to community members, governments, and small business owners.

NCNMEDD has partnered with Santa Fe county, the city of Santa Fe, and the town of Edgewood to assist businesses in accessing funds through the Santa Fe Small Business and Non-profit Stabilization Grant Program. See more about the program or submit your application.

Working Now Loans Now Available

NCNMEDD is excited to announce the new Working Now revolving loan program. Working Now loans are now available to help small businesses affected by the pandemic with expenses like payroll, rent, inventory, marketing, ecommerce development, personal protective equipment and small capital improvements. In addition to funding, NCNMEDD will offer borrowers  technical assistance throughout the life of the loan to foster business success and sustainability.

The Working Now loan process is simple and straightforward. The terms and conditions of the loan will not change, and the review process is streamlined. Our office is here to help you every step of the way.

CEDS County Meetings

 

As part of the process of developing a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for our region, NCNMEDD is holding a virtual Roadshow meeting for each county to review targeted industry clusters. Our partners at the Western Rural Development Center have generated industry cluster lists based on the results of asset surveys and community preference surveys. These lists will be presented, discussed and vetted by Roadshow participants. The resulting data will inform economic development opportunities and strategies for each county. The CEDS is projected to be completed by January of 2021.
