Manufactured housing is often cited as a potential solution to two closely linked challenges in the U.S. housing market: inadequate supply and lack of affordable options for those looking to buy a home. Historically, the unusual way these homes have been treated from a financial and legal standpoint has diminished their potential, both for prospective homebuyers and for the 4.9 million existing owners of manufactured homes.

But in recent years, federal, state, and local actors have taken steps to alleviate these challenges. To highlight promising reforms, strategies, and innovations in the manufactured housing sector, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and The Pew Charitable Trusts Housing Policy Initiative are convening experts from a wide range of perspectives for a conversation on solutions.

Presenters will discuss recent efforts to improve the availability of safe and affordable financing, programs to address aging manufactured homes and community infrastructure, and opportunities to improve the residential security and wealth-building potential of manufactured homeownership.
