Manufactured Home Community Redevelopment Program
The Manufactured Home Community Redevelopment Program is a grant program to fund infrastructure improvements or the acquisition of manufactured home parks. It addresses the needs of aging manufactured home communities around the state and prioritizes projects based on health, safety and critical need improvements. The program also prioritizes projects that leverage support from local municipalities or projects converting a community to a cooperative ownership model.
Eligible applicants include privately, publicly or cooperatively owned communities, as well as nonprofit organizations acting as an intermediary on behalf of a park.

Feature: "Better Together"
In “Better Together,” two dynamic women, Bev Adrian and Natividad Seefeldt, share their journeys in pursuing a cooperative ownership model in which residents own their home as well as the land under it. Doing so insulates them from potential sales of their communities that could displace residents.
Investing in manufactured housing infrastructure is an emerging area at Minnesota Housing.
Notice of Unsolicited Offer Requirement
Manufactured home park owners must notify resident households by mail if they receive an unsolicited offer to buy the park which they are considering accepting or considering making a counteroffer to the offer.
Notifying Minnesota Housing
Park owners must also notify Minnesota Housing when they receive an unsolicited offer they are considering. Park owners must tell Minnesota Housing the price range and material terms and conditions they would consider selling the park. Park owners must send the notification to Minnesota Housing by certified mail:
ATTN: Manufactured Housing Team – Single Family
400 Wabasha St. N., Suite 400
St. Paul, MN 55102
When the Agency receives notification, Minnesota Housing will post and distribute the offer and related terms and conditions as provided by the park owner. The Agency will also notify any representatives acting on behalf of residents and any nonprofits who have registered with the Agency to receive notice. A list of recipients is available here.
If you are a representative acting on behalf of manufactured home park residents or person associated with a nonprofit, you can sign up to receive manufactured home park sale notifications.
To learn more about the notification requirement, read Minnesota Session Laws, 2023, Chapter 37. Article 6, Sections 5 and 6.
