The Northeast New Mexico Economic Development Organization (NEEDO) is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to developing a vibrant, integrated regional economy in the northeastern region of New Mexico that supports, sustains, and builds on the natural environment, the local resources, and the cultural traditions of northeast New Mexico's communities. We apply a strategic regional approach that leverages the assets and resources of the entire northeastern area to strengthen all elements of economic prosperity. Our goal is to build a smart, resilient, and sustainable regional network in which small businesses, entrepreneurs, and community members can all thrive.
The NEEDO region encompasses the nine counties in northeast New Mexico: Colfax, De Baca, Guadalupe, Harding, Mora, Quay, San Miguel, Torrance, and Union.
