Video - American Dream Under Fire: Mobile Home Park Residents Fight to Hold Ground

"Where am I going to go?" wonders Vanessa Ramirez, a hard working mother who lives in a mobile home park facing closure. Her community’s story is captured in a documentary that exposes the challenging future of one of America’s least understood affordable housing options, manufactured - or 'mobile' - home parks.

APAC Members Pick 2014 Legislative Priorities

Formed in 1980, APAC first worked to eliminate no-cause eviction and to create new storm shelter standards. These efforts eventually led to a special section of state law for manufactured home parks (Minnesota Statute 327C), providing numerous resident rights and protections. Currently, APAC is developing strategy for our top priorities for the 2014 Legislative Session as selected by members at our October 12 Annual Meeting.

Support APAC on "Give to the Max Day" -- November 14, 2013!

11/14/2013 - 12:00am
11/14/2013 - 11:59pm

"Give to the Max Day" is November 14th!

Help APAC and manufactured home park residents around the state.

Why should you give?

Here are some great reasons:

Thirty years ago, residents…

  • Didn’t have to be given a written lease
  • Could be evicted without cause
  • Faced the possibility of monthly rent increases of ANY amount
  • Could be asked to leave their home without compensation if a park closed!
  • Did NOT have the legal right to speak out & organize in their communities!
