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