This information was just posted by the Texas Manufactured Housing Association - MHI would be another good source...
"To All TMHA Retailers:
MHI has received an urgent request from FEMA who is researching the availability of existing new single-section HUD Code homes for sale on retail lots within 1,000 miles of Louisiana.
The Louisiana flood has virtually depleted FEMA’s existing stock of HUD Code temporary units used for disaster recovery. FEMA is developing an emergency plan in the event of additional disasters in Florida and the Carolinas due to Hurricane Matthew. Although several thousand new HUD Code units are now in the pipeline for construction by FEMA’s manufacturer contractors, these homes may not be finished in time for FEMA to meet the current demand in Louisiana and potential demand from Hurricane Matthew.
FEMA has asked MHI to provide a list of retailers who would be willing to sell their existing inventory of single-section homes to FEMA. Should FEMA need to purchase homes, they will contact retailers on the list directly and apprise them of the business opportunity. It is our understanding that FEMA will pay market rates, and retailers should be assured that there is no obligation to sell.
If you are interested in adding your name to the list, please send the following information by 4:00 p.m. TODAY, Thursday, October 6, to Ann Parman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
· Name of Company
· Point of Contact
· Contact Information
· Number of single-section homes available
MHI needs this information by 4:00 p.m. TODAY, Thursday, October 6th to meet FEMA’s timeline.
