MHARR Presses HUD on FOIA Request

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) filed to obtain some 1,000 pages of material relating to HUD’s in-plant expansion regulations initially prompted HUD to respond with a cost over $25,000 paid beforehand to process the request. MHARR challenged HUD to produce details of the cost which resulted in the fee subsequently being lowered to $2,519.61. Noting “HUD’s increasing disrespect for the industry as a non-factor in the nation’s housing policies,” MHARR continues to hammer away at what it says are in-plant regulations that needlessly disrupt manufacturing and increase product cost. As MHProNews has learned, the organization continues to press for a non-career administrator for the manufactured housing program in accordance with the 2000 reform law.
