HUD Announces Co-Presenters for the 2024 Innovative Housing Showcase

Showcase Returns to the National Mall June 7-9

WASHINGTON - Today, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the International Code Council (ICC), the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), and the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA) as the co-presenters for the 2024 Innovative Housing Showcase. This collaborative effort promises to highlight cutting-edge building technologies and housing solutions aimed at lowering costs and increasing climate resilience for American families.

“In what’s now an annual tradition, we engage thousands of Americans on the National Mall in new, innovative methods for building housing. But we cannot do this alone – we rely on our amazing partners and co-presenters to bring this effort to fruition,” said HUD Acting Secretary Adrianne Todman. “Together, we are looking forward to hosting thousands more visitors this June, highlighting how we can build resilient, affordable homes into the future.”

“HUD is excited to partner with these four national housing and building organizations to present the 2024 Innovative Housing Showcase,” said Solomon Greene, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research. “These co-presenters represent key partners in the housing ecosystem and, like HUD, they recognize the power of innovation and collaboration. The Showcase will offer a unique opportunity to highlight the latest technologies and designs, as well as the cross-sector partnerships that are needed to meet the nation’s growing housing affordability and climate resilience needs.”

“Innovation is the cornerstone of resilient and affordable housing,” said Dominic Sims, CBO, Chief Executive Officer for the International Code Council. “The Council Code welcomes the opportunity to work alongside HUD and other construction industry stakeholders to advance the codes and standards needed to ensure safe, resilient and accessible housing for all. From sustainable and resilient materials to off-site construction and hazard mitigation, our collective commitment to innovation remains a top priority.”

“MHI is pleased to be a co-presenter for the 2024 Innovative Housing Showcase,” said Dr. Lesli Gooch, Chief Executive Officer for the Manufactured Housing Institute. "This year is especially meaningful as it marks the 50th Anniversary of the law that authorized the HUD Code for Manufactured Housing, establishing a collaboration with industry that continues through this day. As the HUD Code continues to be updated to foster innovation, we are able to meet a wider range of housing supply needs, scaling the efficiency of off-site construction to expand attainable homeownership.”

"We are excited to be back on the National Mall for the Innovative Housing Showcase, this year as both an exhibitor and a co-presenter of the event,” said Jess Lohse, Executive Director for the Structural Building Components Association. “This is a great opportunity to share the benefits of structural building components, like trusses and wall panels, and feature how efficient and beneficial these offsite structural framing solutions are for the industry."

“Rental housing providers are working hard to alleviate the national housing shortage and make housing more affordable. Over 4.3 million apartments in all 50 states and D.C. have adopted The Foundations of Rental Housing - a set of six business principles that residents can expect from their rental housing provider,” said Sharon Wilson Géno, President for the National Multifamily Housing Council. “The Foundations of Rental Housing, powered by the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) is proud to partner with HUD on the Innovative Housing Showcase with the goal of highlighting real, actionable solutions to our housing crisis.”
