Innovations in Manufactured Homes

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.

What's New?

  • The 2014 Innovations in Manufactured Homes (I’M HOME) Conference was held November 12-13 in Seattle, WA. The event was a huge success, and CFED would like to thank the participants and speakers, along with our Lead Organizations and National Partners for contributing to the discussion of manufactured housing as affordable housing. We look forward to seeing you next year!
  • Check out the latest issue of our e-Newsletter, Market Opportunity for stories about our new I'M HOME Network Lead Organizations, high-performance manufactured homes, and resident-owned co-ops in Massachusetts!
  • On July 17, 2014, CFED, the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, Penn State University and Action Housing held a convening in Pittsburgh on manufactured housing in the region. Hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland-Pittsburgh Branch, the goal was to frame a three-year collaborative intervention for manufactured housing residents in eight southwest Pennsylvania counties. The program will be designed to positively impact the environmental, health, aging and financial security outcomes of manufactured housing residents. A key component, and one that many participants repeatedly came back to, is an evaluation element to determine the effectiveness of the project. Click here to view the report!
