Grants to New Mexico nonprofit organizations in eligible areas to address the needs of local populations. In addition, emergency grants are available to nonprofits who have been severely impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Funding is intended for projects and activities within the focus areas of education, financial stability, health, and the social determinants of health. Eligible programs benefit residents in Los Alamos and Rio Arriba County. Preference is given to applicants working toward collective impact through intentional collaboration and identified partners.

For 2021 funding, UWNNM is offering emergency funding to nonprofits that have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are in danger of closing. In selecting emergency funding you will be foregoing any program funding and will be reporting different financials and use of funds in 2021. 

Social and economic factors have a profound impact on health, longevity, and quality of life. They are the main drivers of health disparities. UWNNM is committed to working to address social determinants of health: housing, health literacy, food insecurity, social supports, crime and violence, economic wellbeing, and transportation.
