Letter on Nomination of Ms. Dana Wade to Serve as HUD Assistant Secretary

Dear Chairman Crapo and Ranking Member Brown:

I am writing on behalf of the members of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) to voice our strong support for the nomination and confirmation of Ms. Dana Wade to serve as the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner.

MHARR, as you know, is a Washington, D.C.-based national trade association which represents the views and interests of independent producers of federally-regulated manufactured housing and other small businesses that constitute the traditional core of the American manufactured housing industry. MHARR was founded in 1985 and its members are situated in all regions of the United States.

Ms. Wade – who has a wealth of experience regarding housing and housing finance – showed herself to be a strong advocate for affordable housing, including affordable manufactured housing, during her prior tenure at HUD. Commendably, Ms. Wade was always available to hear the concerns of both the industry and consumers of affordable housing, and took key actions to modernize the federal manufactured housing program at HUD and bring it more closely into compliance with the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000, after nearly two decades of needless delay.

Ms. Wade has thus already shown herself to be a tireless advocate for safe, decent, quality and affordable housing. Particularly given the urgent national need for affordable housing and homeownership that exists today, she would be an important and worthy addition to the management team at HUD.  Consequently, MHARR strongly supports her nomination and urges the Committee to recommend her for confirmation by the full Senate.

Thank you in advance and thank you for your own work to support and advance the availability of affordable homeownership for Americans at all rungs of the economic ladder.

Sincerely,
Mark Weiss
President and CEO
