Manufactured Housing Workforce Development Initiative

Training tomorrow's workforce, today

Meeting the needs
of an evolving industry

The goal of the Workforce Development Initiative is to create state and national Manufactured Housing curriculum for trade schools, junior colleges, online colleges, and state universities.

Labor shortages in the construction industry are impacting access to affordable housing across the nation. Manufactured Homes are the most logical solution to meet this ever-increasing demand. Inevitably Manufactured Housing will become the future of housing and the need for a skilled and trained workforce will required to match.

Case Studies


Kentucky Manufactured Housing Institute in collaboration with K4C have joined their efforts to grow the state’s manufactured housing workforce. K4C hosts Career Days where thousands of high school students from across the state are introduced to the trades. Through clever and engaging exhibits, students participate in fun interactive challenges that showcase the opportunities available in construction.

OMHA takes action in Oregon
