HUD Announces Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee Appointments
The committee advises HUD on manufactured housing production, regulations, and administration of the Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced today the appointment of three new members and the reappointment of three current members to serve on the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC).
These appointments, along with the establishment of the Office of Manufactured Housing Programs as an independent office in June, underscore the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to the importance of manufactured housing in an increasingly unaffordable housing market. The MHCC provides valuable advice to the Office of Manufactured Housing Programs regarding HUD's manufactured home construction and safety standards.
“Manufactured housing is an increasingly important affordable alternative for families across the nation,” said Assistant Secretary and Federal Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon. “The Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee helps us ensure that the HUD Code meets the evolving needs of households and communities with respect to design, safety, energy efficiency, and resilience of manufactured homes.”
The following new and returning MHCC members announced today will serve until their membership terms conclude on December 31, 2025.
- Amy Batiste, Neighborhood Housing Services of New Orleans
- Derek Dodson, Skyline Champion Corporation
- Keisha Hoggard, North Carolina Department of Insurance
- Rita Diienno, United Manufactured Home Volunteers
- Manuel Santana, Cavco Industries
- Aaron Howard, Arkansas Manufactured Home Commission.
