SANTA FE (AP) — The Human Services Department has selected a Washington-based company to help needy New Mexicans get jobs through the state’s welfare-to-work program.

The agency announced Tuesday that it had awarded an $8.7 million, one-year contract to SL Start and Associates of Spokane, Wash.

The company was selected through a competitive bidding process, and the department said the firm has provided employment services for programs in Idaho and Washington.

New Mexico State University previously had the state contract to provide job services to low-income residents in the welfare-to-work program.
