Manufactured homes have been an important source of housing in the United States for more than a half century. As this unique form of housing continues to evolve, so does its delivery into rural markets. Over the past decade there has been a concerted effort by several entities to develop a manufactured housing “done right” model. National organizations, philanthropic foundations, and community-based nonprofits are rethinking the way manufactured homes are built, sold, financed, and placed. What progress has been made as a result of this initiative, and what are the continued challenges with manufactured housing in rural America? The session will include a discussion on the state of the manufactured housing industry, finance markets, nonprofit development, park preservation, resident rights, legislative initiatives, and regulatory developments for manufactured housing.
