FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Money set aside to repair crumbling homes in a development in Shiprock may be used for other projects if the funding doesn't get used soon.
The Farmington Daily Times reports that only about half the houses in the 90-home development were finished or close to being completed.
Many have been damaged by weather and vandalism.
About a year ago, the Navajo Housing Authority set aside $18 million to fix the homes.
But the authority may pull that repair money if the money isn't used soon.
The money would be re-allocated to other housing authority projects.
The company has only a year left to use the repair money.
The authority already is threatening to shift the money to a youth center in Dilkon, Ariz. ___
