You are invited to be part of one of the nation’s most exciting experiments being implemented in New Mexico. County by county, we are working to demonstrate that by ensuring ten vital services for surviving and thriving for all residents, we can increase their health, safety, resilience, education and job readiness. Our model, called the 100% New Mexico initiative, is county-based, data-driven and technology-empowered. Creating a well-resourced county means everyone, in all the communities within a county’s borders, can endure a public health and economic crisis. With engaged leaders and stakeholders collaborating across ten vital service sectors, we survive and thrive.

DEDICATED TO HEROES
The EYE is made possible because local champions have committed their time and energy to developing a county-based initiative, one that is a showcase for applied sciences. The EYE is far more than a collection of ideas or a repository for projects, it’s a tribute to the courage and compassion of local leaders who redefine the term public service. Our 100% New Mexico initiative teams are turning research into real-world solutions every day, often amid an environment of crisis and change. We dedicate the EYE to the local heroes working in our initiatives to demonstrate how collaboration between city government, county government, higher education and local stakeholders can ensure the health, safety and resilience of 100% of families. Our initiatives, all vital works in progress, may be visited in the following localities:
Doña Ana County
Rio Arriba County
Taos County and Taos Pueblo
San Miguel County
Our list of counties continues to grow, in part, because visitors to the EYE are starting up 100% New Mexico initiatives across the state.

The Art of the Collaboration
The work ahead requires the engagement of not only service agency leadership, but artists, muralists, filmmakers, storytellers and writers.
