About Us

The Kentucky Manufactured Housing Institute (KMHI) is the trade association representing the factory-built housing industry in Kentucky. KMHI supports our members with training, continuing education and information — ensuring that the people who design, build, install, sell and finance factory-built homes have access to the best industry practices available.

Our members are dedicated to providing safe, affordable, high-performance homes to individuals and families in communities across the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

An Affordable Homeownership Solution

The supply of affordable, quality housing is shrinking across the country — and Kentucky is no exception. Those looking to own their home in today’s market are sacrificing quality for lower mortgages, or turning to rental options. Modern, factory-built homes offer a solution for Kentuckians, creating a path to sustainable homeownership in their neighborhoods.

Our Work

By partnering with individuals and organizations across the Commonwealth, KMHI and our members are bringing increased housing choice to Kentucky. Our members are ensuring that homes are high-performing and energy-efficient — bringing more value to home buyers — and that buyers have access to smart, sustainable financing options for their home purchase.

A Process, Not a Product

We want all Kentuckians to have the opportunity to participate in the American Dream.

Owning a home has become a key part of that dream, but home prices continue to rise out of reach of many hard working Kentucky families. KMHI, our members and our partners don’t believe that people should have to compromise on quality in order to afford a home.

Factory-built homes are a smart choice for Kentuckians of all backgrounds. Today’s homes balance affordability with top quality features and amenities, energy-efficient performance, and modern style.

Whether it’s a young couple just starting out, a family looking to invest in a stable home for their children, or older individuals who want to make sound decisions for retirement, factory-built homes are a great housing choice for many Kentuckians.

Building a home in a factory is just another process. A home isn’t defined by how it is built, but rather by the individuals and families who live there and share their lives together. Those are our homeowners.
