Press Releases

The New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration Local Government Division (LGD) is pleased to announce that funds are available through the Matching Grants appropriated by the Legislature and approved by Governor Lujan Grisham. These funds will provide local governments with funds to match federal grants.

Under House Bill 2, $1M was secured to provide matching funds to local and tribal governments across the state. Applicants seeking funding must demonstrate that they have submitted a federal grant application and that matching funds are required. They must show that 100% of total project financing costs will be secured with the addition of the matching funds.
