About this program

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) provides core funding to reduce poverty, revitalize low-income communities, and to empower low-income families and individuals to become fully self-sufficient.

The Community Service Block Grant is awarded by the New Mexico Human Services Department to SNMCAC for Chavez, Eddy, Lea, Lincoln and Otero counties. The CSBG program can help low-income families and individuals meet their obligations and put them on the path to stabilization. As funding allows, the program offers emergency help in a variety of forms. Low income families can receive rent or mortgage assistance, prescription assistance, utility bill assistance and more. Clients will also have access to information and referrals.
