About us

As central nonprofit agency for the New Mexico State Use Program, Horizons of New Mexico provides comprehensive statewide support to foster development of contracts for New Mexicans with disabilities, community rehabilitation programs, and public bodies.


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. This program is under the oversight of the New Mexico Council on Purchasing from Persons with Disabilities.
