NCNMEDD was granted funds from the 2020 CARES Act to provide specialized technical assistance to businesses in our region. Project examples are setting up contactless payment, developing a website, creating a technology plan or assisting with permitting for outdoor dining or grower certifications. Participants in the Working Now loan program are given priority to the technical assistance program if they choose. If you have questions about the technical assistance program contact Eric Renz-Whitmore  by phone at (505) 716-5580 or by email.

Small businesses are good for communities. Small businesses create local jobs, support local schools and charities, offer merchandise you won’t find at a big retailer, and provide excellent customer service. According to the US Small Business Administration New Mexico profile, small businesses employ 54.4% of the state’s workforce.


67 cents of every dollar spent at a small business stays in the community, according to estimates by
American Express. When we support small businesses we support a thriving community. Learn more about supporting small business at Shop Small.


Communities around the region work in different ways to support their small businesses. Find some examples below.
