Several manufactured homes are coming to Washington D.C. not only for professionals and consumers but lawmakers too. This is part of MHI’s Homes on the Hill, held in conjunction with HUD’s Innovative Housing Showcase.
Homes on the Hill will take place June 7-12, 2022 to 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 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, said. MHVillage 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,” Krolewski said.
This isn’t the first time manufactured homes have been hosted on the mall. The 2019 event included 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, policymakers, and lawmakers will be present to view the homes and discuss opportunities for innovative and affordable housing. The events on the National Mall coincide with the June designation as National Homeownership Month. More information about Homes on the Hill is available on MHI’s website.
