About Us

On behalf of the New Mexico Council for Purchasing from Persons With Disabilities, Horizons of New Mexico, a central nonprofit agency, provides comprehensive statewide support to foster development of contracts for New Mexico's people with disabilities, community rehabilitation programs, and public bodies.

The last US Census showed that, for New Mexico residents between the ages of 16 and 64, approximately 38% of the state's men with a disability and 31% of its women with a disability were employed, compared with employment rates of 80% and 71% for men and women of the same age group who do not possess a disability.

The New Mexico State Use Act, 13-1C-1 NMSA 1978, is an outgrowth of the state's continuing efforts to expand opportunities for its citizens with disabilities. The Act opens state service contracts, including contracts to provide service to the state as business owners and entrepreneurs, to persons with disabilities without their having to competitively bid for the contract - so long as the services are provided at fair market pricing.
