Amazing News!

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has launched a food initiative program and fund to support small and mid-scale food and agricultural enterprises in New Mexico. The program aims to cultivate a new food system and meet the current and increasing demand for local, culturally preferred foods. The program will make between 4 and 20 awards ranging from $20,000 to $100,000 without requiring a match. The submission cap has already been reached, and the program will not be accepting any more applications for this pilot round of funding. The program prioritizes projects demonstrating a focus on underserved communities, including communities of color, Tribal communities, under-served areas with low- and moderate-income populations, rural communities, urban food deserts, and businesses owned by Veterans, women, and socially disadvantaged individuals. The fund will address financing obstacles and operating barriers for food aggregation/distribution operations, grocery stores, and other healthy food retail in lower income communities.
