Need Help Paying My Bills:

Many people need help paying their bills or debts. Or they need free items, such as food, clothes, or other supplies for their household. There are thousands of financial assistance programs that may help struggling families. There is everything from mortgage or debt help to free groceries, grants to help pay rent or utility bills and medical bill assistance or free healthcare as well. PNM is also currently providing additional support to pay late utility bills:
