Competitive Incentives

Lottery funded scholarship program

The State of New Mexico and its communities offer employers aggressive incentives to encourage job creation and investment. Our financial incentives are designed to be an ongoing benefit that also rewards companies for future expansions. By designing our incentives this way, it allows both new and existing companies to utilize these programs.

A few of our flagship incentive programs include our Job Training Incentive Program (JTIP), offering economic base companies a cash reimbursement to help train New Mexicans. Another popular program is our Local Economic Development Act (LEDA), a discretionary state incentive that can be used as a cash reimbursement towards land, building, or infrastructure.
