APAC's Legislative Alerts!


Contact the Governor and Your Legislators today
to protect Manufactured Home Owners!


In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S economy has suffered major disruptions. Federal, state and local governments have responded in a variety of ways. Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Governor Tim Walz declared a Peacetime Emergency and issued an executive order suspending evictions. And the Minnesota Legislature approved $330 million to address the impacts.

However, Minnesotans especially manufactured home park residents are still at risk of losing coronavirus relief benefits, not being able to pay their rent, and even losing their homes. We need you to act today and contact Governor Walz and your state legislators about these important issues:

• Stop Debt Collectors from Seizing Stimulus Checks

Millions of Americans are expecting stimulus checks from the federal government to help cover basic necessities, at a time when many have lost income and been denied the opportunity to earn a living. These payments should start arriving in people’s bank accounts next week.

However, debt collectors are eager to garnish these payments. States and local governments can protect these payments through executive orders, court orders, or legislation to stop new garnishment orders, halt enforcement of existing garnishment orders, and clarify that stimulus payments are exempt under existing state law.

The best model order to date was issued by the Las Vegas Courts. States as different as Massachusetts and Texas have also halted garnishments.

Contact Governor Walz and your legislators today!


• Suspend Manufactured Home Foreclosures (i.e. Repossessions)

Governor Walz’s executive order suspended home loan foreclosures, but not for all homes. If you are buying a manufactured home, the seller can still start a repossession action to take it back and force you out. Manufactured home owners should be protected from foreclosure, too!

Contact Governor Walz and your legislators today!


• Extend Rental Assistance to Residents of Manufactured Home Park

The federal CARES Act provided the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with an additional $17.4 billion for rent assistance, housing vouchers, public housing, and housing for the elderly. Rental assistance for park residents is considered an appropriate use of these funds but the state government has to approve it.

Contact Governor Walz and your legislators today!


• Provide 60-day Grace Period after Eviction Moratorium

Once the Peacetime Emergency and the stay at home order ends, lives will begin to return to normal and people will begin returning to work. However, people will not automatically regain lost income and will not immediately catch up on past due rent. If no additional action is taken, we are facing a tsunami of evictions and displacements after the current eviction moratorium is lifted.

There should be a 60-day grace period after the peacetime emergency is lifted to pay overdue amounts, apply for Emergency Assistance, and/or vacate without fear of an eviction action being placed on their record.

Contact Governor Walz and your legislators today!
