Community Assistance Events

Financial Assistance, Education and More...

PNM holds a variety of community assistance events throughout the year. This calendar may change during the year, so check back often.

Types of Events

Good Neighbor Fund "On-Site" Events

These events are held statewide in order to make the PNM Good Neighbor Fund more accessible and convenient for our customers. At these events, applications will be taken for the Good Neighbor Fund and if persons qualify, they will be given a special Good Neighbor Fund code that they may call into PNM.  The PNM Good Neighbor Fund will be the only organization at these events applications for the PNM Good Neighbor Fund are acceptable once per year.

Low Income Assistance Events

These events include a number of organizations within the community who have free services, information or assistance to offer customers who are struggling with financial challenges. At the heart of these events is the PNM Good Neighbor Fund, which will accept applications on site and award money to qualified customers for past-due PNM bills. Attendees will leave this event with much needed help and support! Also at these events we will offer "Financial Fundamentals", a 90-minute class on creating and maintaining a basic household budget. Valuable money saving information and debt reduction is also covered.

Senior Assistance Fairs

A number of Senior-focused organizations within the community who offer services, information or assistance to offer income-challenged seniors typically attend these events. Representatives from the PNM Good Neighbor Fund and Silver Horizons will take applications for both funds and will award money to help pay two (2) of the following for qualified seniors (age 62+): electric, gas, propane or water.
