ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico will soon distribute $12.3 million in COVID-19 rental and housing assistance.
The New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) will begin 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.
The governor is encouraging applicants to begin gathering supporting documents now so the applications can be submitted in a timely matter.
"Applications will be ranked based on income level or tribal land residency and the date and time the application was received," Gov. Lujan Grisham wrote in a Twitter thread posted Monday.
