TOOLBOX Peer Networking: Mobile Home Parks – July 16, 2021

Topic: Mobile Home Parks: The Region’s Invisible Affordable Housing

Description: Mobile and manufactured homes offer a very affordable option for single-family ownership and rental housing. Yet mobile-home parks have largely been casualties of the region’s skyrocketing housing costs. Preserving manufactured home communities at risk of redevelopment is an effective strategy for sustaining an important component of the affordable housing stock, as well as preventing displacement of existing residents.
