Based on the 2000 census projections, by 2030 New Mexico will move from 39th in the nation to 4th in the percentage of people older than 65. EngAGE New Mexico is designed to increase awareness and funding support for New Mexico’s growing aging population.

Con Alma Health Foundation is leading EngAGE New Mexico. The project goal is to increase funders’ awareness of aging issues and build a coalition of funders that would enhance the impact of grantmaking to better support New Mexico’s aging population. The project is also interested in identifying ways to increase partnerships between public and private sectors to make New Mexico a model aging-friendly state, including developing advocacy positions and pushing for reform on behalf of the senior population.
