Mobile and Maufactured Homes In Central Appalachia and Alabama: Age, Condition and Need for Replacement (2016)

Median Income for Residents of Mobile Homes by Year Built

This study provides a comprehensive snapshot of mobile and manufactured housing in Central Appalachia and Alabama and identifies the most pressing needs of residents in the region. Local housing partners plan to build on the findings of the report and develop policy recommendations to address the issues revealed in the study, in particular the cost burden of families living in manufactured housing. These recommendations will focus on shaping a federal manufactured housing replacement bill and strengthening ENERGY STAR programs, including advocating for the reinstatement of the Tennessee Valley Authority incentive program, supporting Duty to Serve credit, improving state housing financial agency lending programs and a supporting federal tax credit for home manufacturers.
