Assessing manufactured housing in regional and local housing plans
Manufactured housing accounts for about 7% of the nation's housing stock, and in some areas much more.It is generally affordable to low and moderate-income families. Yet, HUD does not mention it in its current strategic plan and only cites the statutorily required market survey in its Biennial Report. No wonder most states and localities fail to account for it in their comprehensive and consolidated planning.

HUD needs to mandate that PJs and states assess MH. To that end, HUD should comprehensively survey existing planning tools to determine assessment gaps, as well as basic data on land tenure, quality, age, conditions and demographics. While some of these data exist, they are far to diffuse to be useful as a planning and policy tool.
