About the Manufactured Housing Webinar Series
Regardless of the economic landscape, affordable housing persists as a challenge in many communities across the country. Affordable housing developers, advocates, stakeholders and public officials need a comprehensive toolbox of affordable housing options that meet the full continuum of affordable housing needs in their community. Manufactured housing is a high-quality, affordable choice for many homeowners.
The goal of the Manufactured Housing Webinar Series is to provide practical information on the opportunities of manufactured housing as an affordable housing strategy. The series focuses on the intersection of building a local and state policy landscape that supports owners of manufactured housing and highlights case studies that have successfully leveraged strong policies to help homeowners build assets. Those interested in promoting quality, affordable housing options in their community should plan on attending. Topics in the Manufactured Housing Webinar Series rely heavily on the content of the Manufactured Housing Toolkit, available on the Manufactured Housing Advocacy Center<http://cfed.org/r/A/MTI1NjI/OTA4OA/0...lfY2VudGVyLw>.
