MHI’s 2022 Homes on the Hill Impresses Policymakers
MHI’s Homes on the Hill concluded June 12, and the three HUD Code homes showcased on the National Mall are headed to manufactured housing land-lease communities where three families will achieve the American Dream of homeownership. MHI and its members once again successfully showed policymakers and the general public what quality, attainable housing really looks like.
In Washington, Seeing is Believing
MHI members from across the country blanketed Capitol Hill and met with their Senators and Representatives to discuss our industry’s policy priorities. Our industry met with Congressional offices to talk about the need to update FHA’s Title I and Title II programs, ensure DOE’s energy standards do not become effective until they are revised and adopted as part of the HUD Code, and that federal efforts to preserve and develop manufactured housing communities include land-lease communities.

MHI hosted an Open House on the Mall where Members of Congress and Administration officials toured these beautiful homes. They were wowed by the quality, attainability of what today’s manufactured homes can provide to America’s families.

Manufactured Housing is Delivering on the American Dream
As part of HUD’s Innovative Housing Showcase, MHI joined HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge, FHA Commissioner Julia Gordon, FHFA Director Sandra Thompson, Ginnie Mae President Alanna McCargo, and Fannie Mae President David Benson, among other leaders, in a closed-door roundtable discussion.
