HUD Introduces Office of Manufactured Housing Programs as New, Independent Office within Housing
June 22, 2023
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Housing is announcing that it has created a new Office of Manufactured Housing Programs as an independent office reporting directly to Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon. The Office was previously organized under the Office of Housing’s Office of Risk Management and Regulatory Affairs. This action acknowledges the important role of manufactured housing in meeting the nation’s affordable housing needs. Manufactured housing has figured prominently in the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to increase the supply of affordable housing and can be a helpful avenue for those of more modest means to achieve the wealth-building potential of homeownership.
“This organizational change represents a recognition of the critically important role that manufactured housing plays in our country’s housing market,” said Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon. “Thanks to the work executed by our Office of Manufactured Housing Programs over the last two years, we have made significant progress to support the availability of modern and affordable manufactured homes.”
