Governor Phil Scott and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) announced the launch of the Manufactured Home Improvement and Repair Program (MHIR), offering financial assistance to manufactured home communities as well as current and prospective manufactured home owners. The Vermont State Housing Authority (VSHA) will be processing applications for MHIR and the application portal will open today. The Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO) Mobile Home Program will provide application assistance to mobile home owners in need of home repairs. Applications will be accepted until October 31, 2024, or until funds are exhausted, whichever occurs first. 

“For decades, mobile home communities have been facing a number of environmental and habitability challenges,” said Sandrine Kibuey, Director of CVOEO’s Housing Advocacy Programs. “This program should significantly improve immediate areas of need such as the lack of availability and easy access to resources for home repair and maintenance and replacement or removal of old, outdated, and abandoned mobile homes.”
