Message to All Minnesotans:
CALL THE HOUSING COMMITTEE CHAIRS!
Lift the Cap on Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund Benefits
Call today and let the committee chairs know why it is important to hold a hearing:
- The Relocation Trust Fund provides for moving costs or a home buy-out in the event of a mobile home park closure. During the 2011 session, a $1 million cap was placed on the Trust Fund.
- This amount is not enough to cover the costs of just one large park closure.
- In addition, if the balance is not allowed to rise, it will not be possible to increase the maximum benefits for relocation or buy-out, which are now set well below actual costs.
- You can refer to the proposal as either Senate File 1735 or House File 1887.
