Manufactured Housing in Minnesota.

Date and time: 
November 21, 2008 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Presenters:

  • Chip Halbach, Minnesota Housing Partnership
  • Leigh Rosenberg, Minnesota Housing Partnership

Chip Halbach, executive director, and Leigh Rosenberg, research and outreach coordinator, both from the Minnesota Housing Partnership, discussed the organization’s recent research report, “Manufactured Housing in Minnesota.” The results of the study suggest that manufactured home owners often stand at a disadvantage compared to site-built home owners due to policies that treat the types of homes differently, despite the fact that both serve as permanent dwellings. Policy recommendations were presented to address concerns that manufactured homeowners are more vulnerable and have more limited financing options. Additional perspectives on the issues were provided by Warren Kramer, Northcountry Cooperative Development Fund, and Pablo Tapia and Paul Wissmiller, All Parks Alliance for Change.
