“This report by Innovation Trail reporter Jenna Flanagan introduces an Ithaca, N.Y.-area man who is trying to make a big impact on the homeless — one tiny house at a time,” says their YouTube page.
Innovation Trail “is a reporting project that aims to help the public gain a better understanding about some of the big issues that upstate New York communities are facing.”
“Our reports focus on research, development, education, funding, and policy issues in emerging fields like energy, information technology, biotech, health and education,” said Innovation Trail.
The video mentions that NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 5 year, $20 billion dollar affordable housing plan.
What is totally unmentioned is manufactured housing.
Doing the Manufactured Housing Math
At $4 billion dollars a year,
with a $70,000 ‘average’ priced manufactured home,
placed on a $40,000 home site,
would yield 36,363 affordable housing units a year,
or 181,818 manufactured homes and site over 5 years.
This is why manufactured housing is the affordable housing solution that is hiding in plain sight.
The Daily Business News will monitor and report on the ongoing efforts for manufactured housing understanding and acceptance. ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)
