Locals in Hobbs are getting some extra help as they deal with a housing shortage.

Lea County is committing almost $340,000 for public infrastructure after a recent oil book in the city.

According to the Hobbs News-Sun, the majority of the money will be used to create an infrastructure incentive program for single and multi-family homes. 

Oil company executives have been vocal about the need for more housing.

The city issued permits for 14 new homes in November, bringing the total for the year to 153.
