Frontier Communities Initiative FY18 Application

By | Communications/Media Specialist
October 26th, 2017 | Category: General

New Mexico MainStreet is accepting applications to join the NMMS Network as a Frontier Communities Initiative Project. The Frontier Communities Initiative was established by the New Mexico Legislature in 2013 to respond to enhanced needs for assistance from New Mexico’s most rural communities. The initiative provides community economic support to rural communities under 7,500 in population to develop a design-focused catalytic economic development project within a historic or commercial district.

NMMS will only be adding a limited number of programs based on the current program budget. It is highly recommended that interested communities attend a pre-application webinar to be hosted on November 9, 2017 at 10:00 AM for Frontier Communities. The pre-application webinar will include information regarding the application process to NMMS and provide an opportunity for interested communities to ask questions. Please register for the webinar. Please watch the webinar.

Please contact Daniel Gutierrez for additional information on the Frontier Communities Initiative at 505-827-0151 or The deadline for applications is January 31, 2018, 2PM MST. Please see the application packet for more details

Please see the Frontier Communities Initiative Application Packet for more information. The application is available in several formats as a fillable document, or you may prepare your materials and answer the questions in the order outlined in the application and attach separately.
