Chile Labor Incentive Program


Chile Labor Incentive Program

March 14, 2022 – The State of New Mexico is providing $1 million in financial assistance to the New Mexico chile industry through the Chile Labor Incentive Program (CLIP). These funds will be administered by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA). The intent of CLIP is to support both the chile farmers and chile processors in their effort to incentivize hiring and retention of the seasonal workforce necessary to harvest and process New Mexico chile crops from the 2021 harvest season through the 2024 harvest season, or until funding has been exhausted.
