Nonprofit Seeks to Alter Landscape of Affordable Manufactured Housing

February 23rd, 2011 Comments off

The Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, collaborates with Neighbor Works in their I’M HOME (Innovations in Manufactured Homes) program, which supports a wide range of sustainable, affordable housing.  Realizing the need to change the framework that separates manufactured housing from stick-built, and to open doors to more available financing for low-income manufactured housing, the organization received funding from the Ford Foundation to pursue their objectives.  The organization has also spearheaded initiatives to help residents of factory-built communities purchase their communities, and to replace pre-1976 mobile homes with HUD Code manufactured homes or modular homes.
