MHI Homes on the Hill to Be Held June 6-7

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will host the 2023 Innovative Housing Showcase on the National Mall from June 9-11.

The Showcase is a public event to raise awareness of innovative and affordable housing designs and technologies that have the potential to increase housing supply, lower the cost of construction, increase energy efficiency and resilience, and reduce housing expenses for owners and renters.

“The Innovative Housing Showcase is an excellent opportunity for HUD to exhibit the creative approaches industry leaders across the country are taking to the building, design, and development of our nation’s housing,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “I invite everyone to join us on the National Mall this June to see our collaborators’ ingenuity on full display.” 

More than 2,500 people — including policymakers, housing industry representatives, media, and the general public — are expected to attend. There will be more than a dozen exhibits, including full-sized prototype homes that represent the future of housing.

This will be the third time HUD has hosted the event, the first time in 2019, and in June of 2022. The event is timed with National Homeownership Month. Each year the lineup of homes has included manufactured homes and modular homes.

Industry Learning, Networking with MHI

The Manufactured Housing Institute in previous years has scheduled in coordination with IHS its industry fly-in day and the Homes on the Hill event that provides an invitation to legislators, staff, and policymakers for a hosted walk-through of the homes. The 2023 Homes on the Hill will be held June 6-7, just prior to the HUD event.

MHI will have an opening night reception at the host hotel, which will be announced in the weeks to come. Members will meet for breakfast the following morning, and receive an industry briefing. Industry representatives will take the day to talk with lawmakers and staff about priorities, challenges, and opportunities before coming back down to the National Mall for a mixer, and a tour of the homes.

Manufacturers interested in exhibiting at the showcase should see the Federal Register Notice for requirements and direct any further questions to HUD.
