“The inaugural Innovative Housing Showcase” (IHS2019) says the HUD YouTube page, “featured new building technologies and housing solutions that are making homeownership more affordable for American families and homes more resilient during natural disasters. The Showcase includes panel discussions, on-stage interviews, and demonstrations with exhibitors, lawmakers, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the housing industry.”
HUD has posted these two videos, shown above and below.
This third video by HUD is their ‘wrap up’ video, and features a narrative by Secretary Ben Carson.
So, HUD continues to promote the importance and meaning of the Innovative Housing Showcase.
What about others?
It is interesting to note that the Manufactured Housing Institute has not made it easy to find their own vides from their own website.
In fact, on this date, we found no way to access MHI’s YouTube videos from MHI’s own website.
Secretary Ben Carson’s address to MHI in New Orleans is also still missing today.
These raise concerns reported at the link above. MHI backers, what say you? How do you explain these obvious oversights? Especially during a downturn?

MHARR Launches “Fighting Discriminatory Zoning Mandates” Manufactured Housing Project | Manufactured Housing Association Regulatory Reform
Washington, D.C., May 15, 2019 – With manufactured housing producers, retailers and communities offering their best homes (and related consumer protection) ever, and in light of the failure of the ostensible representation of the industry’s post-production sector to fully and effectively advance the marketing, consumer financing and, most importantly, the full acceptance of federally-regulated manufactured housing as the nation’s premiere source of non-subsidized affordable housing and homeownership, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) has launched a new project and initiative to fight selected, especially egregious instances of discriminatory and exclusionary zoning targeting manufactured housing and manufactured housing consumers.
