California Governor’s Office Working with MBI on Shipping Container Initiative for Homeless
MBI Government Affairs Director, Jon Hannah-Spacagna, was contacted by leadership in Governor Newsom’s office to discuss a partnership with our industry to utilize the influx of shipping containers at California ports and waiting to be unloaded at their ports to donate to our industry to build affordable housing for the over 600,000 homeless in the state.
MBI worked with member companies to provide general information on average cost per square foot, the interest in the state potentially donating spaces near the port to open new manufacturing facilities to meet their needs.
This initiative is still in the very early stages. MBI will keep members updates as new information becomes available.
