MHARR CHALLENGES MISLEADING WASHINGTON POST ARTICLE – SEEKS CORRECTION

Washington, D.C., September 27, 2021 – The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), in a September 22, 2021 communication, has admonished the author and publisher of a misleading September 9, 2021 article regarding manufactured housing see, copies attached , and has called for the publication of a full, accurate and factual correction.

While offering some positive commentary regarding affordable, federally-regulated manufactured housing, the article, entitled “A Factory-Built Home as a Means to Affordable Housing,” fails to explain why today’s modern, high-quality manufactured homes remain in a more than decade-long production slump, despite an unprecedented demand and unprecedented need for affordable homeownership (within the private sector as well as relevant government programs at all levels). A full and proper understanding of this crucial disconnect, as MHARR’s letter explains, requires an explanation and consideration of the two overriding factors within the industry’s post-production sector – exclusionary and discriminatory zoning and a lack of fully-competitive and available consumer financing – that have suppressed the manufactured housing market and have not been aggressively and effectively addressed by that sector and its national representation in Washington, D.C.

MHARR’s communication thus calls for a follow-up to the September 9, 2021 Washington Post article to fully elucidate these issues and the urgent need for their positive and effective resolution as an essential element in remedying the nation’s worsening affordable housing crisis.

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform is a Washington, D.C.-based national trade association representing the views and interests of independent producers of federally-regulated manufactured housing.
