On May 22, the Minnesota Legislature approved and, June 1, Governor Mark Dayton signed into law changes to the relocation trust fund as part of what is called the "Supplemental Spending Bill." APAC researched, drafted, and lobbied for these changes. The legislation will go into effect after August 1, but they are now the law of the land.
The Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund will now provide significantly more to either move or replace a home when a park is closed for private redevelopment. To recap what is different:
The NMHOA Board of Directors announced the 2016 Annual Convention of the National Manufactured Home Owners Association will be held in Las Vega, Nevada from Tuesday, September 20 to Thursday, September 22.
The 2016 I'M HOME conference will take place in San Antonio, TX during the week of November 14. More details will be available in early summer 2016.
If you are a park resident who lives or works in the west Twin Cities metro area, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is seeking input on how mobility and transit options can be improved on Highway 169. This information will help MnDOT make decisions about the future design and operation of Highway 169. All participants who complete this survey will have a chance to win one of two $25 VISA gift cards.
Participate in the survey online.
The legislative session has arrived, and APAC is working hard to get the benefits for the Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund increased so it works like it should! Learn more here!
