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.

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.

2021 Announcements

 

ARP Funds for Fiscal Recovery - Non Entitlements 

The Fiscal Recovery Funds (FRF) program, established through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, provides funds to support State, local, and Tribal governments in their recovery from COVID 19. Funds can be used:

  • To respond to the public health emergency or its negative economic impacts, including assistance to households, small businesses, and nonprofits, or aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel, and hospitality; 

  • To respond to workers performing essential work during the COVID–19 public health emergency by providing premium pay to eligible workers; 

  • For the provision of government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue due to the COVID–19 public health emergency relative to revenues collected in the most recent full fiscal year prior to the emergency;

  • To make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure. 

Additional guidance on Non-Entitlement funds, the award process, and use of funds can be found here and the request for distribution form can be found here. The deadline for FRF form submissions is Friday, July 2nd. Contact Kenny Pin at (505) 356-9098 if you have questions about the process.
