Mar 20, 2024 | Newsroom

Santa Fe, NM –DHSEM’s Disaster Case Management team will be hosting Contractor Connects, a community repair and rebuilding expo, on March 30 from 10am to 3pm at New Mexico Highlands University.

This free and open to the public event will connect residents impacted by the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon (HPCC) wildfires to contractors licensed by the State of New Mexico. During the event, residents will meet with licensed contractors, hear about available services, learn about processes and permits, and take the first steps for rebuilding and repairing their property.

In addition to getting help finding contractors, residents will be able to enroll in Disaster Case Management for support with navigating the recovery process and complete their Notice of Loss. Disaster Case Managers, FEMA-Corps and the HPCC Claims Office will be on site to assist residents who attend.

Contractors who would like to participate in the expo can do so for free. Registration is requested but not required. Those interested can register and fill out a short survey here.

Residents impacted by the fire who are unable to attend the event can enroll in Disaster Case Management by calling 505-670-4662.
