Programs that may apply to you if your business is...

Maintaining or even expanding headcount?

Open, keeping your head above water?





In a position to restore headcount by June 30 (ideally with a re-hire ramp starting by 5/1)?





In need of liquidity and working capital?





Looking to cover non-payroll operating expenses?





Looking to retain workforce by offering paid sick leave to employees impacted by COVID-19?





Hunkering down with shuttered operations (yet with strong business fundamentals)?





Mid-Market New Mexico companies with >40 employees and strong business fundamentals?
