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.
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.
