Over 17 million people in the United States live in manufactured homes and more still seek affordable pathways to build assets through homeownership. At CFED we believe that manufactured housing can and has opened the door to homeownership for millions of families, a door that otherwise would have remained shut. In order to realize manufactured housing’s asset-building potential, we have implemented interventions through partnerships, practice, and advocacy that improve access to quality homes and communities, and support favorable public policies and safe and affordable home financing.
