ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico is distributing $12.3 million in COVID-19 rental and housing assistance. 

The New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) began accepting applications on Nov. 2 from New Mexicans who are behind on their housing payments due to the pandemic. Those who are eligible may receive up to $1,500 a month for three months to cover past-due rent or mortgage payments, according to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
