The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is conducting a new review of its manufactured housing rules

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is conducting a new review of its manufactured housing rules, focusing on identifying regulations that the department said “may be ineffective, overly burdensome, or excessively costly given the critical need for affordable housing.”
HUD is now accepting public comments to identify whether current or potential regulatory actions related to manufactured housing may inhibit job creation or impose costs that exceed the public benefit. HUD noted that manufactured housing provides nearly 10 percent of the nation’s single-family housing stock and is home to more than 22 million American households. The manufactured housing industry employs approximately 35,000 individuals, HUD added.
HUD noted that it “may adopt, revise, and interpret its manufactured housing rules based upon the public's comments it receives and the recommendations of the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee, a statutory federal advisory committee comprised of producers or retailers of manufactured housing as well as consumers, residents and public officials.”
