— Paraphrase of Mark Weiss, MHARR press release 10.6.2022.
WASHINGTON, D.C. , UNITED STATES, October 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- MHARR's Washington officials met with senior HUD executives regarding manufactured housing program issues on October 3, 2022. The meeting included, among others, HUD Assistant Secretary for Housing/Federal Housing Commissioner, Julia Gordon, HUD Office of Manufactured Housing Programs (OMHP) Administrator, Teresa Payne, and representatives from HUD’s Office of General Counsel (OGC). Addressed during the meeting were multiple pending high-priority issues affecting the manufactured housing industry and American consumers of affordable housing. The matters highlighted by MHARR and addressed during the meeting, are summarized below and will be the subject of ongoing follow-up by MHARR. Further details regarding this interaction with HUD officials will be provided at MHARR’s upcoming Board of Directors meeting.

The MHARR meeting with HUD Officials addressed the following topics, per their release.

> Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) Representation and Meeting Procedures

> Pending Department of Energy (DOE) Manufactured Housing Energy Standards and Enforcement

> Pending Conditional Sprinkler Standard

> Combating Exclusionary Zoning and Applying HUD's Federal “Enhanced Preemption” Under the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000, Likening
federal preemption to HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) initiative

> Manufactured Housing Consumer Financing Improvement via FHA Title I Program Reforms

> HUD “Monitoring” Contract

On the federal preemption issue involving the implementation of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act (MHIA) of 2000, MHARR's release stated the following.

"In addition to the foregoing regulatory issues, MHARR also urged the Assistant Secretary and HUD to take an aggressive position against state and local zoning mandates which exclude or otherwise discriminate against affordable manufactured housing and the lower and moderate-income Americans who rely the most on inherently affordable HUD Code homes. Likening such exclusion to the practices targeted by HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) initiative (which specifically empowers HUD to target zoning restrictions which contribute to patterns of housing discrimination), MHARR called on HUD to use the express (and broad) enhanced federal preemption of the 2000 Reform Law to target the repeal and/or invalidation of such exclusionary zoning mandates which, as documented by multiple housing researchers, needlessly increase the cost of housing and homeownership in communities and either promote or reinforce patterns of racial and economic discrimination."
