New Mexico provides a cost effective, pro-business environment, and our incentive toolkit plays an important part. The State of New Mexico and its communities offer employers aggressive incentives to encourage job creation and investment. New Mexico’s business incentives are designed to be an ongoing benefit that rewards companies for future expansions. By designing our incentives this way, it allows both new and existing companies to utilize these programs.
Local Economic Development Act (LEDA): Discretionary state incentive that can be used toward the reimbursement of land, building or infrastructure costs. Funding awards are determined on a project-by-project basis.
