Village of Virden

The Village of Virden wants your business to succeed. We passed a Local Economic Development Act (LEDA), which allows us to enter “public private partnerships” with the state in projects that benefit the local economy. The New Mexico Municipal League’s “Grow It” campaign is another initiative to stimulate private-sector job growth by informing business owners of the many free and low-cost services that can help them get on their feet and grow into healthy companies.

Here you will find organizations that offer personalized assistance, training, networking, technical support and other services — some at no cost to you.
