The state started accepting applications at 9am on September 26

The fourth stimulus is being sent out thanks to the legislature for approving $10 million worth of relief.

“Many low-income New Mexico families have experienced substantial economic and personal losses,” said Angela Medrano, Deputy Secretary of the HSD. 

“These funds will help people in our communities who need the extra money to help feed and house their families.”

Speaking to KRQE News 13, HSD Communications Director Marina Piña said: “Depending on the number of eligible applications, the funds can be distributed accordingly.

“Our hope is that we get a good amount of applications so that we can serve the people who need it the most.”

How to qualify and apply

Along with being a New Mexican resident with low income, you need to submit the following information: 

  • First and last name 
  • Address 
  • Bank account and routing numbers

Additionally, you’ll need to provide either a diver license number, a Social Security number or an individual taxpayer identification number

Applications can be submitted online through the “YesNM” portal

The exact income ranges to qualify aren’t clear but the DHS previously issued the following statement to The Sun: “Payment eligibility and amounts are subject to the availability of funds and will be issued to the lowest income applicants first. 

“The income of all applicants is reviewed and payments are made to the applicants with the lowest income respectively given that they meet all eligibility requirements, such as being a New Mexico resident and having a NM DL #, ITIN or SSN,” it added. 

Once applications are submitted, a confirmation number will be received.

The DHS said applicants will receive a “final determination” on whether they will receive benefits or not.

For those who are eligible, direct deposits are the quickest to receive the cash.

Those who do not provide banking information will get their payments via mail, which will be sent out by the end of November.
