EUNICE, N.M. (AP) - Another southeastern New Mexico region is trying to address its housing shortage.

Councilors in Eunice recently voted to approve $1 million awards from the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority to construct a 16-unit housing complex.

City Manager Marty Moore says the two awards will help alleviate infrastructural stress. He says the apartments are going to be affordably priced.

Despite recent drop in oil prices, towns and cities in Lea County continue to face housing shortages because of the booming oil industry.
