The Governor Richardson, Olmos, Trejo COVID-19 Emergency Fund for the Southern Colonias of Doña Ana County

Former Governor Bill Richardson and Actors Edward James Olmos and Danny Trejo have joined forces to create a fund to assist families in the hard hit Colonias-area of Southern New Mexico. The Governor Richardson, Olmos, Trejo COVID-19 Emergency Fund for the Southern Colonias of Doña Ana County will offer cash assistance to individuals and families.

Partnering with the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico and the Community Action Agency of Southern New Mexico, the fund will offer applicants a one-time check – $150 for individuals or households without children and $300 for individuals or households with one or more children. Families may use this cash assistance for groceries, medical bills, rent, utilities, car repairs, or whatever emergency expenses they might have due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligibility requirements: you must reside in San Miguel, Mesquite, La Mesa, Del Cerro, Vado, Chamberino, Berino, Las Palmeras, Montana Vista, Joy Drive, La Union, Anthony, Chaparral, Santa Teresa and Sunland Park areas and meet certain income requirements. You can begin the application process below.

Due to the overwhelming requests for assistance, the Southern Colonias of Doña Ana County assistance program will not be accepting applications until further notice.
