HUD Issues Two Manufactured Home Industry-Wide AC Letters

HUD Issues Two Manufactured Home Industry-Wide AC Letters

HUDLogoHUDBuildingPhotoIssuesTwoManufacturedHomeIndustryWideACLettersManufacturedHousingAssocRegulatoryReformLogo

The HUD Office of Manufactured Housing Programs (OMHP) has issued two-industry wide Alternate Construction (AC) letters copies attached. The AC letters, issued December 16, 2020, extend the applicable time period of a previously-published AC concerning certain windows (20-IW1-AC), and address the use of certain circuit breakers for water heaters (20-IW2-AC).

The window AC extends the duration of HUD’s original action, permitting the use of windows certified in accordance with the AAMA 1701.2-12 and/or AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-11 standards, until June 30, 2021. Meanwhile, the breaker AC is valid until April 30, 2021. Both ACs arise from supply-chain issues related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

While these actions by HUD will provide HUD Code manufacturers with temporary regulatory flexibilities in coping with discrete supply issues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, HUD has still not taken action on dozens of broader and more significant regulatory reform proposals considered and recommended by that statutory Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) pursuant to Trump Administration Executive Orders 13771 and 13777. Specific action on these recommendations would have a far more lasting and significant impact on the program and on the affordability of manufactured housing, and should be HUD’s first and overriding priority.
