The Income Support Division and Children Youth and Families Department provide much needed services for many New Mexico individuals, families, and children across the state.

The Income Support Division has automated eligibility processes which allow many customers who apply online to receive quick and efficient eligibility determinations without stepping into an office. ISD customers who do not have cellphone or internet access can also use curbside services, which were implemented for the safety of our customers and our employees during the public health emergency. The Portales ISD staff will be available during their curbside hours from 10 a.m. – noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you visit the office during these times, please stay in your car and we will serve you.
