Two NM Communities Closer to Achieving Main Street America Affiliation
Santa Fe, N.M. – Today, New Mexico MainStreet (NMMS) welcomed Lordsburg Economic Advancement Project (LEAP) and Revitalize San Pedro Partnership (ABQ) as new Accelerator programs, a pathway for communities to achieve Main Street America affiliation. Both programs previously participated in NMMS’s project-based initiatives, the Frontier & Native American Communities and Urban Neighborhood Commercial Corridor Initiatives respectively, to complete economic development projects and build organizational capacity. As an Accelerator, both programs will work on achieving NMMS Accelerator benchmarks during a 12-18-month timeframe. NMMS will provide guidance and technical assistance throughout the Accelerator process to move the programs toward Main Street America affiliation.
