FARMINGTON, N.M. -- The signing of a contract for building materials allows the start of construction of new homes for Navajo veterans.

The Daily Times reported that the Navajo Nation's veterans affairs department plans to build 75 homes across the sprawling reservation, which is is located in northeastern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico and southeastern Utah.

The $1.9 million contract will provide housing material for 75 energy-efficient homes through Dec. 30. The homes will have one, two or three bedrooms.

The material is to be delivered in phases so it isn't damaged by bad weather during construction.
