Federal Emergency Management Agency Seeking Emergency Housing

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) informs MHProNews the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)’s “Industry Days” to chart a course for the construction and logistics of emergency Temporary Housing Units (THUs) were largely question and answer sessions. At the March 15 day-long event, however, FEMA did note it wants the units built for use anywhere in the country, will entertain alternatives to taped dry wall because of the potential for separating during transport, and will make only HUD Code dwellings—no park models or trailers or other structures. FEMA also seeks information from producers on a possible production schedule following a catastrophe. While FEMA says it will issue solicitations for bids in the near future, it first will offer a “draft solicitation” to seek additional comment and input from interested parties.
