Due to the COVID19 virus, we have to adjust our Benefits Connection Center operations. We will be open Monday-Thursday only and cannot allow walk-in clients. Thank you for understanding!

Benefits Connection Center

Many New Mexicans are not aware that they are eligible for government benefits, or they do no know how to apply.

We help low-income adults connect to government benefits programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy, Medicare Savings Program (QMB), Low Income Energy Assistance Program, Low-Income Water/Solid Waste Credit and Medicaid.

This service is offered free of charge, thanks to grants from the National Council on Aging (NCOA). We work to make the process as simple as possible, cutting through governmental red tape and getting people the services they need. We even help complete all the paperwork!
