NMDWS receives grant for employment recovery for displaced workers

All CARES Act benefits are 100% federally funded

The U.S. Department of Labor has approved a National Dislocated Worker Grant in the amount of $3 million to the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS). The funding will provide employment recovery for displaced workers significantly affected by the spread of COVID-19, which will ultimately enable businesses and New Mexico residents to begin to recover from the negative economic impact to our state.

$258 million paid out to claimants under PUA, PEUC, and FPUC

All CARES Act benefits are 100% federally funded

The CARES Act was signed into law on March 27, 2020. By April 25, New Mexico was one of only seven states that were issuing payments on all three federally funded programs under the Act, including Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).

13 weeks of extended Unemployment benefits now available

All CARES Act benefits are 100% federally funded

An additional 13 weeks of benefits is available to individuals who have exhausted their regular state Unemployment Insurance claim with a benefit year that ended on or after July 1, 2019.
