Community Development Bureau


The Community Development Bureau has assisted New Mexico’s municipalities and counties in investing over $250 million in federal CDBG funds to address local community development needs. Bureau staff members provide assistance and oversight to local officials with the implementation of needed infrastructure, public buildings, housing rehabilitation, economic development, planning and other critical projects.

The second major responsibility of the Community Development Bureau is the administration of hundreds of Capital Outlay Projects passed by the New Mexico Legislature and signed into law by the Governor each year. The Bureau executes formal agreements with units of local government, processes payments and ensures that these state funds – nearly $400 million over ten years – are spent in accordance with authorizing legislation.
