FEMA requesting Manufactured Homes for Harvey

FEMA has announced that it is asking the manufactured housing industry to produce at least 4,500 manufactured homes to start providing housing for the people displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

Exeter, PA, November 19, 2011–FEMA contractors build a ramp into a temporary housing unit at the Mt. Lookout Community site in Exeter, Pennsylvania. The temporary housing units were brought in to house more than 300 disaster survivors who lost their homes following Tropical Storm Lee. Andrea Booher/FEMA

As a result, you will likely see manufacturers shifting production across their networks of plants. While the plants you may work with may not start producing FEMA homes, they may be called upon to increase production to meet the demand in other areas.

During Tropical Storm Lee and Hurricane Irene that hit the mid-Atlantic region in August and September 2011, FEMA not only supplied temporary housing units to those affected, but also established manufactured housing communities, including all infrastructure needed to support the new communities.

Tunkhannock, PA, November 19, 2011–FEMA contractors clear ground for the temporary housing units that will be brought in to the Highfieds Community site in Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania. The temporary housing units will house disaster survivors who lost their homes following Tropical Storm Lee. Andrea Booher/FEMA

  1. And Jersey didn’t allow them to do that
    FEMA had to solicit each community in NJ on the east coast to use their empty sites
    OR SO I WAS TOLD ?
