MHARR on the Move

Staff members of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) met May 26 with Acting HUD (Housing and Urban Development) Assistant Secretary for Housing – Federal Housing Commissioner Bob Ryan, and career officials of the HUD manufactured housing program.  Issues included consumer financing, changing HUD’s “trailer” orientation to “housing” orientation per the reform provisions of the 2000 law, appointing a non-career program administrator, and the role of the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC).  In a related development, MHARR has asked that the House Appropriations Committee include, as part of the FY 2012 Homeland Security Appropriations bill, language requiring HUD code manufactured housing to be used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), both within and outside established land lease communities, for temporary and permanent relief as part of disaster assistance.  Read the full report at MHARR Officials Meet with Federal Housing Commissioner.
