Negative Economic Impacts


Provide grants to community organizations to offset the negative economic impact experienced by community members in Las Cruces.

On May 2, 2022, City Council adopted an eligibility process and guide for community organizations to apply for funding. The process was modified from a procurement process, with guidelines to ensure compliance with federal requirements.

A scoring committee comprised of six City of Las Cruces employees scored the applicants, and made funding recommendations to City Council.

Funding also covers the administration and oversight of grant contracts.
