Do better, Albuquerque Police Officer’s Association. Your #CrimeMattersMore campaign is a disrespectful, insensitive co-optation of the #BlackLivesMatter movement hashtag – and it is disingenuous to suggest otherwise. This insult goes beyond tone deafness. Just stop.

Even if we take this thinly-veiled message at your word, we can only conclude that you don’t respect the US Constitution. The idea that police can’t do their jobs effectively while being held accountable for their actions is a sad statement on your idea of policing. Do better.

We see what you did there by co-opting #BLM. Co-optation is appropriating something built for one purpose and using it for a different goal. At least come up with an original hashtag and quit stealing the excellence and labor of Black people who built the brand awareness.

Do better APOA. Before you go off explaining away your lame slogan (BTW having to explain it means you failed) just own it for what it is – divisive, bad form and bad for our city. We know what you meant and we are telling you to stop. Don’t be couy with us.

As the COVID-19 vaccine is rolled out , it’s important to be on the lookout for scams.
• Beware of scams offering asking for money to put you on the list, make an appointment or reserve you a spot, or move you up the line. Asking you to pay for the vaccine to get it early is a sure sign that it is a scam.
• Watch out for signs of “imposters” posing as a government agency.
• Ignore sale ads – you cannot buy the vaccine anywhere.
• Do NOT share your personal or financial information if someone calls, texts, or emails you promising to get you the vaccine faster or for a fee.

Also, keep in mind that All COVID-19 vaccines are free. There is no cost to receive the vaccine. You will not be billed directly. The vaccine provider may bill your health insurance directly, but there is no co-pay.

How do I get a vaccine in New Mexico: To pre-register with the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) for receiving your COVID-19 vaccination go to https://cvvaccine.nmhealth.org/. Registration forms are available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

For more information from the NMDOH regarding COVID-19 vaccinations click here or go to https://cv.nmhealth.org/covid-vaccine/. If you have questions or would like support with the registration process with NMDOH – including if you do not have internet access – dial 1-855-600-3453, press option 0 for vaccine questions, and then option 4 for tech support.

For the latest vaccine updates from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) click here or go to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

When you receive your vaccination -- REMEMBER that social media is no place for posting photos of your vaccination card!

Posting a picture of your card poses risk to you! Your vaccination card has information on it including your full name, date of birth, where you got your vaccine, and the dates you got it. Personal information posted on line gives identity thieves the opportunity to use that information and will put you at risk.

Register with the New Mexico Department of Health to receive your COVID-19 Vaccine. When vaccine is available, NMDOH will send you a notification to schedule your appointment.

City of Albuquerque Announces Applications are Open for $21.6 Million in Emergency Rental Assistance

ALBUQUERQUE – The City of Albuquerque announced today that residents can begin submitting applications for $21.6 million dollars in federal funds that will help eligible families with Emergency Rental Assistance. The City is administering these funds in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) and is working with local partners to get the funds to those who need them to pay rent and utilities. Information and a link to the application can be found at cabq.gov/rent.

“Vaccines are rolling out and restrictions are lifting, but we can’t leave behind families who are still struggling to keep a roof over their heads and pay their utility bills due to the pandemic,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “This funding is a lifeline that will help stabilize Albuquerque families who are at risk of losing their homes.”

The Emergency Rental Assistance funds will be used to provide aid to renters who are at or below 80 percent of the area median income, have been directly or indirectly impacted by COVID and are at risk of homelessness or housing instability. Funds can be used to pay rent and utility payments that are past due, in addition to future rent. Eligible households may receive up to 15 months of assistance, although households who need help with future payments will need to re-apply for assistance every three months.

Among the key goals established by the City are to work with community partners to conduct outreach to people who need emergency rental assistance and provide support to complete the application. That includes marginalized communities of color, non-English speaking communities and other communities who have been disproportionately impacted due to structural inequities and resulting health and social vulnerabilities.

“This is a significant amount of support for Albuquerque and we want to make sure that everyone who could benefit is hearing about this opportunity and has the support they need to apply,” said Carol Pierce, director of the City’s Family and Community Services. “We have many partners throughout the City who are going to help spread the word and offer assistance to those who need it to apply.”

The state of New Mexico, who is administering funds on behalf of the City, will either pay the landlord and/or the utility provider directly depending on the financial assistance requested by the applicant. Landlords and utility providers are encouraged to download a W9 and submit it to DFA via [email protected] as soon as possible to ensure a streamlined process for receiving payment.

The City of Albuquerque has been offering rental and utility assistance throughout the pandemic and has distributed over $1.1 million in support. Learn more about all available rental assistance opportunities at cabq.gov/rent.

More than $21.6 million in Emergency Rental Assistance is available beginning April 5 to Albuquerque residents.
