Information For Individuals Experiencing Financial Hardship

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has declared a state of public health emergency in New Mexico as a result of the novel coronavirus disease (also known as COVID-19). In the midst of this unprecedented public health crisis, the negative impact to the economy has caused many individuals and families to suffer severe financial difficulties. The state and private companies have taken measures to mitigate financial hardship and the state is diligently working to identify additional sources of relief and to advocate for a full measure of federal support. Click here for resources.

Information for employers whose business and employees have been affected as a result of COVID-19

President Trump signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act into law Wednesday night

Which expands access to emergency paid sick leave to workers. Qualifications for eligibility are employees that work at a company with fewer than 500 employees; local, state, and federal government employees; employees who work under a multiemployer collective agreement and whose employers pay into a multiemployer plan.

The act provides sick leave for full and part time employees. Employers will initially pay the cost of the emergency paid sick leave but will be fully reimbursed by the federal government within three months.  Emergency Paid Family Leave Fact Sheet.

Santa Fe COVID-19 Mutual Aid Form

Times seem really wild and unpredictable right now and we can isolate and hoard or possibly find a way to stay in community and help each other out. Safe distancing is important, but so is solidarity.

Here’s the idea: pair those in need in Santa Fe with those able to help by filling out this form. We’ll do our best to match offers with requests.

This effort is being coordinated by Raashan Ahmad/Beth Gutelius and organizers with Earth Care YUCCA/Red Nation/Santa Fe DSA/Fathers NM. EC YUCCA has shifted its climate organizing campaign to focus on mutual aid and is helping to staff this effort.

If you have questions or suggestions contact us at santafemutualaid@gmail.com.

The Community Services Department:

This county department has implemented Santa Fe County Connect, with the goal of addressing the needs of our residents by connecting them with resources to stay healthy. Stable housing and utilities, access to food, reliable transportation, and feeling safe all lead to better health and well-being.

Through our Connect network, navigators across the City and the County link residents to services and resources in the community. Navigators use a web-based platform to screen for and make referrals to address needs. If you would like to speak with a navigator, please contact Jennifer Romero at (505) 995-9525 or email: jnromero@santafecountynm.gov

Our website describes Santa Fe County Connect and how it helps people. The Resource Directory provides information about local resources.

50% Off Store:

Because this store is part of the mall, it is technically closed. However, our pets matter so we’ve moved pet food into the hallway outside the hardware store. We just received a very large shipment of Taste of the Wild for dogs if you need to stock up.
