There is discussion of the 2020 Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Budget, and its impact on housing.
There talk about opportunity zones, something that could prove useful for manufactured home producers, among others.
Then there is discussion by Secretary Carson on homelessness and more.
This week, Secretary Ben Carson appeared on CNBC to discuss how HUD is promoting economic opportunity through the Opportunity Zones initiative, among other tools for revitalizing distressed communities around the country and creating more affordable housing for American families.
With Opportunity Zones – which MHProNews spotlighted earlier this week – Carson said, “you are taking dollars that are going to be invested in something somewhere, and you are directing them to the areas that have been most neglected economically, historically,” Secretary Carson said. We have “a chance to revitalize those areas and to provide jobs and opportunities for the people there so they can climb the ladders [of opportunity] and become part of the American dream.”
Secretary Carson serves as Chair of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council. The Council’s 13 Federal member agencies will engage with governments at all levels to identify ways to effectively use taxpayer dollars to revitalize low-income communities. The video also discussed the 2020 HUD Budget, some facts about the manufactured housing component of that topic are in the report linked below the byline, email headline news sign-up, and notices.
