                                 A BILL


 
  To require the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to issue 
    guidelines relating to the appropriate inclusion of residential 
   manufactured homes in Consolidated Plans, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``HUD Manufactured Housing 
Modernization Act of 2019''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:
            (1) Manufactured housing is a significant source of 
        unsubsidized affordable housing in the United States.
            (2) Nearly 22,000,000 people in the United States live in 
        manufactured housing, which opens the door to homeownership for 
        families who, in many housing markets, cannot afford to buy a 
        site-built home.
            (3) Manufactured housing is the only form of housing 
        regulated by a Federal building code, which includes standards 
        for health, safety, energy efficiency, and durability, and is 
        found on land owned by the homeowner and land leased by the 
        homeowner in communities owned and operated by private 
        entities, nonprofit organizations, or resident-owned 
        communities.
            (4) Manufactured homes can open the door to homeownership 
        for millions of families; they can appreciate in value and be 
        an effective long-term affordable housing solution for some 
        families and communities across the United States.

SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

            (1) Consolidated plan.--The term ``Consolidated Plan''
