​​​​​​​UPDATED GUIDELINES FOR CONTINUITY BUSINESS GRANTS - DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS NOV. 20

Eligibility guidelines for business continuity grants were just updated and Doña Ana County wants to ensure all eligible businesses can apply for financial relief, as soon as possible.

“The CARES Act Relief Fund monies are available and the criteria was just expanded to ensure all businesses who could use help, receive funds to pay for COVID-19 related costs,” said County Manager Fernando R. Macias.  “Supporting our business community is the reason we sought these funds.  Now business owners must apply to access these continuity grants.”

The Cities of Anthony and Sunland Park, the Town of Mesilla and the Village of Hatch partnered with Doña Ana County on this effort.  The Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce on behalf of Doña Ana County is accepting applications from businesses for the continuity grants.

The expanded eligibility criteria follows:

  • Have an active business registration license, in good standing
  • Businesses located in Doña Ana County (excluding the City of Las Cruces), Cities of Anthony and Sunland Park, Town of Mesilla or Village of Hatch
  • Employ up to 100 full-time employees and an annual revenue of less than $5 million
  • Made necessary modifications to help curb the spread of COVID-19, even if did not close or curtail business operations
  • Non-profits are also eligible

      “We need complete information before the application can be submitted and we partnered with The Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce to help business owners with the process,” Macias said.
