During uncertain and difficult times as such we are experiencing during COVID-19, HELPNM has adapted its services to provides emergency and stabilization assistance to those in need living within the 10-County area.
As part of a national effort to address the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19, through the CARES Program we will be delivering longer-term recovery efforts.
Individuals and/or families in the 10 County area who have lost or are receiving reduced income from unemployment as a result of the COVID-19, those that have unforeseen expenses due to COVID-19 such as healthcare copays, childcare, or are in need of assistance with food, utilities, car repairs, medical or insurance premiums, etc. will be eligible to apply for the CARES Program.
Client eligibility for HELPNM’s CARES program is based on a “poverty” income threshold that is established by the United States Department of Health and Human Services and by a 10-County Served criteria to include Bernalillo, Colfax, Mora, San Miguel, Torrance, Rio Arriba, Los Alamos, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Taos.
