Manufactured Homes Go To Washington: Homes On The Hill Returns For 2022

Have you ever wanted to tour a manufactured home for yourself? Are you unsure of what manufactured housing is, and want to see the latest evolutions in this type of affordable home? 

If you have, then get ready: Several manufactured homes are coming to Washington D.C. for not only consumers, but lawmakers too. This is all part of an event called Homes on the Hill, in conjunction with HUD’s Innovative Housing Showcase. This event is hosted by the Manufactured Housing Institute.

Homes on the Hill, which will take place from June 7-12, 2022, will bring three manufactured homes to the National Mall in an effort to raise awareness of the value of factory built homes as a whole.

The homes will be on full display so that the general public can see manufactured homes in 2022 for themselves and catch up on the latest innovations being made to these affordable, stylish homes.

“Manufactured housing is an extremely affordable and accessible housing solution for millions of homeowners,” Darren Krolewski, Co-President and Chief Business Development Officer for MHVillage, which is a gold sponsor for Homes On The Hill. “Events like Homes On The Hill are great for raising even more awareness about just how great manufactured housing can be for those that aren’t in the loop.” 

All three manufactured homes are HUD-Code certified and are some of the latest models built by Skyline Champion and Cavco Industries, two manufacturers in the industry. 

While this isn’t the first time manufactured homes have been hosted at Homes on the Hill, it is the first time in three years that the event has been held due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2019 event saw public comments from Dr. Ben Carson, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, highlighting the advantages of manufactured housing. 

“When people realize that a manufactured house…looks just as good as a site-built home, costs 30-40 percent less, is more resilient when it comes to weather, all of these kinds of things are things that people don’t know,” Carson said at the 2019 event.  

Carson added that he hoped Congress would notice these homes and place more emphasis on manufactured homes in their states. 

Various members of the current administration, including policy makers and lawmakers, will be present to view the homes and discuss opportunities for innovative and affordable housing.
