The purpose of the Manufactured Home Installation Program
is to implement regulations 24 CFR 3285 and 24 CFR Part 3286
to ensure that states have in place a minimum installation stan
dard and an operating installation program.
In states where the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) will administer the Manufactured Home
Installation Program, HUD will ensure that trainers of installers
planning to work in HUD-administered states are registered with
HUD, and that persons planning to install homes in HUD-
administered states are licensed by HUD.
