Emergency Rental Assistance Program Information


Rent Help NM

 The help desk phone number is 1-833-485-1334. The rental assistance and utility assistance program will begin taking applications starting April 5, 2021 thru August 2021

The State of New Mexico will either pay the landlord and/or the utility provider directly depending on the financial assistance request by the applicant. Landlords and utility providers are encouraged to download a W9 and submit it to DFA via as soon as possible to ensure a streamlined process for receiving payment.  

If you would like more information or to brainstorm some great ideas on how to get the word out, we would like to set up a meeting with our Deputy Cabinet Secretary Renee Ward and Henry Valdez.  Please contact me if you are interested in meeting with the team.
