In the U.S., millions are still working, hoping and praying for the original American Dream: home ownership.
More than a half a century since the “War on Poverty” began, not much has changed – and the nation is in the midst of an affordable housing crisis, where preservation, and creation, are both critical.
It appears that a key part of the solution to the affordable housing crisis is buried at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the agency that Dr. Ben Carson now heads.
Secretary Carson has spoken of private-public partnerships as a part of the solution, and President Donald Trump has promised to fight for the forgotten Americans who elected him. The president also vowed to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C.
The president wants to create millions of jobs. He has started an aggressive agenda of regulatory rollbacks, sparking new economic activity and confidence.
The solution to the affordable housing crisis is “hiding in the open,” as MHProNews and MHLivingNews Publisher L.A. “Tony” Kovach covers in his Inside the MH Road Show video interview with MHARR adviser and former association leader Danny Ghorbani, and current MHARR President and CEO M. Mark Weiss, JD, below.
“Well, let me put it to you this way, if this industry was to create a person to put in the White House for betterment of our industry and consumer, they could not have come up with a better person than President Trump,” said Ghorbani.
“If this industry, by the time he’s done 4 years, or hopefully 8 years, if this industry does not advance the way it should, the way it must in Washington, I hate to say this, the industry has dropped the ball.”
“Manufactured housing is the private sector solution to affordable housing, without costing government subsidies. And we can supply that need,” said Weiss.
“We just need to be unshackled from excessive regulations, in order to pursue our full potential.”
