Why does APAC need you to "Give to the Max"?







Residents are fighting against …

  • LOSS OF HOMES – Residents own their homes, but rent the land and, if their community is redeveloped, moving homes is often too expensive for residents
  • UNHEALTHY COMMUNITIES – State law establishes clear health & safety standards, but enforcement is often ineffective and many problems remain unresolved
  • UNREGULATED UTILITIES – Residents lack the protections given other rate payers
  • FEW HOME OWNER PROTECTIONS – Manufactured homes are classified as personal property and titled like cars, which leads to more costly loans and fewer rights
  • ATTACKS ON THEIR RIGHTS – Park management often interfere with residents’ legally guaranteed rights to organize, speak out, and stand up for themselves!

Residents through APAC are fighting for…

  • FAIR RELOCATION COMPENSATION – Residents fund the Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund with a $12 annual fee and benefits should cover actual costs
  • HEALTH & SAFETY ENFORCEMENT – Provide residents with notice of park health code violations and better tools for enforcing the law
  • FAIR UTILITIES – Give residents the same rates and same legal protections
  • HOME OWNER RIGHTS – Classify manufactured homes as “real property” with access to better loans and more consumer protections
  • FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS – Defend the right of residents to speak out and organize their communities!
