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!
Let your elective representatives know that this matters to you by sending them a letter or email. This makes a big impact!
You can use the following as an example, or write your own.
My name is ___________, and I live in _____________________, a manufactured (mobile) home park. I am writing to ask for your support for Senate File 2930 / House File 2825, a proposal to increase the benefit amounts issued from the state’s Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund. The bill’s authors are Sen. Melissa Wiklund (D-Bloomington) and Rep. Anna Wills (R-Rosemount).
I am very concerned because if my park closed, the current benefits from the fund would not actually cover the expenses of moving. It would be devastating if the fund I have been paying into didn’t actually protect my neighbors and me from financial crisis in the event of park closure.
I would appreciate your support of this common sense proposal to update the Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund benefits. Thank you for your attention to this important issue!
