Youth Conservation Group

 

The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) was created in 1992 to provide a process to employ youth ages 14-25 in public projects that conserve New Mexico's natural resources and provide community benefits of lasting value. YCC grants are open to governement agencies, tribal governments and 501c non-profits.

The YCC RFP for 2021 will be released in July 2020 and be open through early October. If you would like to be notified directly when the RFP is released, please email sarah.wood@state.nm.us to be added to the list. YCC will hold several preproposal conferences around the state to assist applicants, and also post conference and other assistance online.  

Counseling & Training

 

If you, like many small business owners, need a business counselor to help guide you through this uncertain time, you can turn to your local Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Women's Business Center (WBC), or SCORE mentorship chapter. 

 

These resource partners, and the associations that represent them, will receive additional funds to expand their reach and better support small business owners with counseling and up-to-date information regarding COVID-19. There will soon be a joint platform that consolidates information and resources related to COVID-19 in order to provide consistent, timely information to small businesses.
