    Ask Congress to Support Resident-Owned Manufactured Housing!

    From our partners at Prosperity Now:

    The Manufactured Housing Community Sustainability Act was recently introduced in the House by Rep. Ilhan Omar D-MN-5) and in the Senate by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). The bill would create a tax credit that incentivizes mobile home park owners to sell their property to the residents, cooperatives or non-profits - instead of investors or other private entities. While many manufactured home residents own their homes, they often do not own the land underneath them. This division of ownership can lead to eviction and displacement for residents in the event of park closures or sales.
