Disaster Relief Aid Approved for Bernalillo County

Bernalillo County wants to help residents impacted by the pandemic who are not eligible for other programs. Officials say the Disaster Relief Program was approved by commissioners on Tuesday night. To qualify, an applicant must be a county resident who doesn’t qualify for a federal stimulus check and who doesn’t qualify for unemployment benefits. Commissioners have not yet said how much money each person could get. County officials say the application for the program will be posted at a later date.
