It's the newest solution to the housing crunch.

The Permian Basin Task Force is being called a big success.

The newly formed group of builders, realtors, and economic development offices met last week to share resources and talk about new programs to help our rural communities.

The members represent just about every community in West Texas and parts of Southeastern New Mexico.

The Odessa Economic Development office tells NewsWest 9, about thirty different communities attended the event, including some from as far away as Rankin.

They're sharing federal and state resources in hopes of building homes in the $90,000 to $130,000 dollar price range.
