Public Policy Impact Grant Program (PPIG)

Public Policy Impact Grant Report 2015-2017

The final report for the 2017 $1000 Public Policy Impact Grant was submitted on June 30, 2017. It reported that because of delays in the New Mexico Courts a case that will determine whether the State of New Mexico will or will not be held accountable under the 2013 New Mexico Fair Pay for Women Act has not yet been heard.  This determination will have great bearing on the regulations written for the law.  Thus, the $1000 grant will remain in the AAUW-NM account until such time as it will be used to support publishing and distributing the draft regulations and holding forums in five cities around the state to hear public comment as outlined in the proposal.    Karyl Lyne, Public Policy Impact Grant Chair
