New Mexico Worker Pandemic Relief Benefit

One-time payment of $1,200 through the Department of Workforce Solutions for eligible New Mexicans who’ve exhausted all other unemployment programs.


One-time $750 benefit to self-employed households that did not receive a federal stimulus check last spring.


Coming soon: New Mexico Finance Authority support of up to $1,500 a month for 3 months for households struggling to keep up with rent or mortgage payments. 


The Legislature also provided funding for food banks around the state. If you need emergency food assistance, please reach out to a food bank near you.

I also wanted to share this number if you – or someone you know – needs some emotional support during these difficult times. If you need support, reach out to the New Mexico Crisis Line. There are dedicated numbers for health care providers, first responders and people in crisis. Help is available.
