Minority children -- who made up over 60% of those in foster care -- waited twice as long for permanent homes as did other foster children, because there were fewer minority parents in the pool of foster and adoptive parents. The Multiethnic Placement Act of 1994, as amended in 1996, sought to decrease the length of time that children wait to be adopted by eliminating race-related barriers to placement. This report provides information on (1) efforts by federal, state, and local agencies in foster care and adoption placement policy and guidance, and technical assistance; (2) the challenges all

Manufactured housing (MH) units (built under the HUD Code in the controlled environment of a manufacturing plant and transported in one or more sections on a permanent chassis) provide an important source of affordable housing. After adjusting for land costs, the per square foot cost of HUD-Code housing is less than half of standard, site-built housing. With the increased use of multi-section units and recent innovations in MH building technology, particularly integrated floor and chassis systems, many MH units are now virtually indistinguishable from conventional site-built units.
