Low-income New Mexico Families Can Apply For Relief Payments
Inflation has affected many low-income New Mexico families by increasing the costs of food, housing, and other daily necessities,” Kari Armijo, acting secretary of the New Mexico Human Services Department, stated in a press release. “These relief payments will help people across New Mexico who are struggling to feed, house, and care for their families.”
You will need the following to apply:

- A New Mexico address (mailing or residence)
