On January 4, 2022, Ginnie Mae (GNMA) welcomed new President Alanna McCargo. McCargo was unanimously confirmed by the Senate last December, GNMA tweeted on 12.15.2021. Ginnie Mae plays a key role in single family manufactured home lending under the HUD/FHA Title I loan program.  That program has been all but dead, per data from the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI). Only a few dozen HUD Code manufactured homes were financed in a year, out of the roughly 100,000 new manufactured housing units produced annually. While MHI touted HUD Principal Deputy Ast. Secretary of Housing and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Lopa P. Lolluri’s “manufactured homes comparable to site-built homes” statement in November 2021, where are the MHI memos and engagement regarding GNMA’s McCargo? Given that MHI is the industry’s self-proclaimed umbrella organization that represents “all segments” of production and post-production interests, lending is certainly in that post-production bucket. By contrast, the production-focused Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) provided their new release on the topic, including their communique to McCargo on manufactured home lending.  Those are found below, after the official tweets from GNMA on McCargo’s appointment.

MHARR Urges New Ginnie Mae President to Restore Support for – and Integrity of – Manufactured Home Consumer Lending

 JANUARY 11, 2022


                        MHARR STATE AFFILIATES

                        MHARR TECHNICAL REVIEW GROUP



MHARR, in a January 10, 2022 communication to new Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae) President, Alanna McCargo (copy attached), has called on that organization to fully restore its statutory support for manufactured home consumer lending and thus re-establish the integrity and full-scale utilization of this government-insured home lending program.

As industry members are aware, the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) Title I manufactured housing personal property loan program, providing federally-insured purchase-money loans on HUD Code manufactured homes, ultimately securitized and guaranteed through Ginnie Mae, was once a significant source of consumer financing within the manufactured housing market, providing ten-of-thousands of loans annually.

That level support for the manufactured housing finance market, however, came to an abrupt halt when Ginnie Mae, in the wake of the 2008-2009 home mortgage crisis and weak industry post-production sector representation in Washington, D.C., adopted its infamous “10-10” rule, which effectively excludes the vast majority of manufactured home financing providers from qualifying for participation in the FHA Title I program. Instead, participation in the Title I program during the needlessly-prolonged “10-10” era, has essentially been limited to two lenders affiliated with Clayton Homes and its corporate parent, Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., neither of which have prioritized FHA-based lending. This, in turn, has resulted in a sharp and continuing decline in FHA Title I originations, which have fallen to negligible levels since the imposition of the “10-10” dictate in 2010.

This “destruction by regulation” of the statutory FHA Title I manufactured housing program not only stands in violation of Congress’ recently-reiterated support for an active and meaningful FHA/Ginnie Mae Title I lending effort, but also undermines racial equity in home lending, contrary to the most fundamental policies of the Biden Administration, by effectively closing-off a non-discriminatory source of government-sponsored financing for minority homebuyers (and particularly lower and moderate-income families) who face disproportionately-high loan rejection rates within the private-sector home financing market as reported in 2021 by the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB).

This de facto administrative elimination of the FHA Title I manufactured housing program, combined with the de facto administrative elimination of the statutory Duty to Serve (DTS) mandate with respect to manufactured housing personal property loans — as MHARR has repeatedly warned the industry, Congress and the Biden administration — has effectively put HUD Code consumers and the industry “between a rock and a hard place,” with absolutely no securitization or secondary market support for the nearly 80 percent of the manufactured home consumer financing market represented by chattel loans, through either federally insured and securitized Title I loans, or private sector loans pursuant to DTS. The historical absence of effective national-level representation for retailers, communities and financing companies, therefore, to fight-back against such destructive policies, has – and continues to – deprive consumers of the benefits of full access to affordable manufactured housing, together with a fully-competitive financing market.

MHARR, will continue to educate and press Congress and the Biden Administration to fully restore and implement these two good laws – FHA Title I manufactured home lending support and DTS — that have been squandered in Washington, D.C. for far too long.

January 10, 2022


Ms. Alanna McCargo


Government National Mortgage Association

425 3rd St. SW

Suite 500
Washington, DC 20024

Dear Ms. McCargo:

On behalf of the members of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), please accept our congratulations on your confirmation and swearing-in as President of Ginnie Mae.

MHARR is a Washington, D.C.-based national trade organization representing the views and interests of producers of manufactured housing regulated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) pursuant to the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (1974 Act) as amended by the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 (2000 reform law). MHARR’s members are primarily smaller and medium-sized businesses located in all regions of the United States.

As you are undoubtedly aware, HUD-regulated manufactured housing is the nation’s leading source of affordable, non-subsidized homeownership for lower and moderate-income American families. Consequently, we commend you for your early and unequivocal commitment, as President of Ginnie Mae, to advance policies that will “make affordable homeownership and rental housing available for millions of households….”

In order to facilitate the availability and utilization of inherently affordable HUD-regulated manufactured housing, pursuant to and in accordance with the purposes and objectives of the 1974 Act as amended by the 2000 reform law, Congress long ago authorized — and has repeatedly ratified and updated — Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-backed consumer loans for purchases of (i.e., Title I) and improvements to (i.e. Title II) HUD Code manufactured homes.

Unfortunately, however, for more than a decade, an arbitrary Ginnie Mae mandate, applicable only to issuers of manufactured housing-based Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) (i.e., Part 2, Section C of Chapter 30 of Ginnie Mae’s MBS Guide — Adjusted Net Worth Requirements) has decimated lender participation in FHA’s manufactured home loan programs.  As a result, those programs, which helped finance tens of thousands of manufactured home purchases prior to the adoption of the above-referenced section of the MBS Guide have, for years now, seen only negligible levels of participation and loan originations. And the disappearance of FHA/Ginnie Mae support for the manufactured housing lending sector, virtually overnight, helped to fuel a broad and severe downturn in the manufactured housing market which has persisted ever since, with production levels far below historic norms.

This failed and unnecessary policy not only needlessly undermines the availability of affordable, non-subsidized manufactured homes for all lower and moderate-income American families, but also has profound racial and economic equity implications, as emphasized by a May 2021 Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) report showing that minority groups which are “overrepresented” among manufactured housing chattel loan applicants, experienced a disproportionate level of rejection by available lenders. Obviously, action to restore FHA/Ginnie Mae-insured lending for manufactured housing would have an extremely positive impact on the market as a whole and for these applicants in particular, by providing them with an alternative, non-discriminatory source of consumer financing.

Given this issue and its overriding importance to both the manufactured housing industry and American consumers of affordable housing, we look forward to meeting you and working with you to help restore FHA’s longstanding and statutorily-directed role in the manufactured housing consumer financing market.  We will, therefore, contact your office soon to schedule such a meeting.

Again, congratulations and we look forward to meeting with you soon.


Mark Weiss
President and CEO

Where is the MHI counterpart to this MHARR message and news release?


Additional Information, More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

It is increasingly difficult for MHI supporters to say with a straight face that the Arlington, VA based trade group is making any serious effort to increase single family manufactured home lending, as they claim. Yes, MHI puts out letters. Yes, they arrange for photo and video ops that may produce some pull quote that sounds and behaves – as a MHEC member told MHProNews – “Razzle Dazzle.” But where is the MHI beef? Where are the bottom-line measurable results?

The Masthead report and analysis addresses a federal bookend to GNMA, namely the recent FHFA announcement. MHI is apparently silent on both of these key issues. Why? Where is their performance to match years of rhetoric?

Much of the report linked below would apply to the FHA Title I/Ginne Mae topics too. Certainly, the evidence dovetails.




When asked to respond to the growing evidence of their apparent failures to perform, MHI is silent. Consider the obvious questions posed to MHI top staff, ‘elected’ leaders, and their attorneys. Meanwhile, MHI-friendly bloggers and publication continues to fluff them in a disturbingly public fashion.

They have a legal right to stand mute. But they can’t hide from reality forever. Who says? Honest Abe Lincoln, among others.

The MHProNews accountability project is going to continue to bring broader public attention to the issues that appear to account for relatively low sales and production of HUD Code manufactured housing during an affordable housing crisis.

Warren Buffett is increasingly known in manufactured housing circles for paltering and seemingly contradictory statements. But give the man his due. He was quite right that planting a tree and patiently nurturing it will over time produce shade in the years ahead.





If MHI leaders cared about vibrant industry growth – as past MHI President and CEO Richard “Dick” Jennison flaccidly postured without performance claimed – the reports following the quote below paints a picture of opportunities that are begging for robust manufactured housing industry growth.


Still and quote are from the video posted on this page.





With that patient and persistent notion in mind, stay tuned for what’s next as MHProNews/MHLivingNews continue to shine the light from facts and evidence that stands alone among other trade publishers and bloggers in explaining why manufactured housing is operating at only some 30 percent of its last high-water mark in 1998. During an affordable housing crisis, instead of primping, posturing, prancing, and paltering, MHI and their corporate leaders have to be held to account for their failures – as measured against MHI’s own stated desired goals.


Manufactured housing could be roaring. But instead, it is snoring. Since MHI claims to be the leaders, aren’t and their corporate masters obviously accountable?

The above is about 8 minutes of reading. The links provide additional evidence and color. They arguably provide more authentic (vs. deception and misdirection) insights as to what has led to the current true state of the manufactured housing industry underperformance during the Berkshire era of manufactured housing in 2022 than all of the MHI memos and their willing fluffers have combined.

It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. MHProNews/MHLivingNews will continue to light multiple candles, including via mainstream media press releases, to bring the woes of manufactured housing to the broader public’s attention.



When it comes to MHI and their corporate leaders, the case can be made that the parodies, satire, and barbs practically write themselves.
