New Manufactured Housing Office Highlights Affordability Concerns

A new independent office has been created for manufactured housing programs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Employees at the Office of Manufactured Housing Programs will report to Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon, according to a press release.

The office was previously organized under the Office of Housing’s Office of Risk Management and Regulatory Affairs.

Support of manufactured housing is a part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to increase the overall supply of affordable housing.

“This organizational change represents a recognition of the critically important role that manufactured housing plays in our country’s housing market,” Gordon said.

During the last two years, HUD has supported the continued production of manufactured homes as well as changes to modernize construction and safety codes, according to the press release.
