HUD Officials Laud Florida Homes with PATH Technologies
At a press conference on September 23, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Assistant Secretaries Dennis Shea and John C. Weicher joined representatives from the National Association of Home Builders and the Manufactured Housing Institute to discuss the homes, and how new building codes and advanced building technologies can create safer and more durable housing.
"Today we see the proof that HUD's new construction standards for manufactured housing are creating better and safer homes," Shea said. "Working closely with our industry partners, we can say that properly installed manufactured housing is as safe and storm resistant as any other new home."

With the National Research Council's program assessment as its impetus, PATH is conducting a self-study that will involve interviews and exploratory discussions with industry and government officials knowledgeable about effective dissemination of technology information to multiple audiences. The resulting plan will undergo testing and further refinement before it is implemented to guide PATH's dissemination activities and outcomes assessment.
"PATH has made important strides over the last year in sharing its technology resources with a wider audience of industry professionals," notes Carlos Martín of HUD. "But there's much left to do to make the program the powerful vehicle for industry advancement that it can be."
The dissemination plan is expected to begin driving program outreach priorities in early 2005. Industry professionals interested in contributing one half-hour to an hour of time to assist with this effort should contact PATH.
