The number of New Mexicans with a Disability referred to the NMDVR and applying for NMDVR services continues to increase. Unfortunately, our program funding has not.

By law, the NMDVR must implement an Order-of-Selection process to prioritize individuals to whom we can provide services based on disability priority as follows:

Priority

  • Individual with a Most Significant Disability
  • Individual with a Significant Disability
  • Individual with a Disability

Effective August 13, 2018, the NMDVR can only provide services to individuals meeting priority 1 - Individual with a Most Significant Disability.
