 The National Consumer Law Center (NCLC) and Manufactured Home Owners Association of America (MHOAA) submit these comments in response to the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) proposed rule regarding the Government Sponsored Enterprises’ (“Enterprises”) duty to serve the manufactured housing market. 

We commend the FHFA for recognizing the importance of the manufactured housing market. The Enterprises play an important and influential role in the secondary market. Therefore, they have the potential to substantially improve financing opportunities for thousands of very low-, low-, and moderate-income families buying manufactured homes.
