Manufactured Housing Policy


NJ MH Policy and Advocacy Center

Manufactured Home Owners Association of New Jersey is pleased to present the suite of policy documents prepared by CFED (Corporation for Enterprise Development) and its partners (including the Manufactured Home Owners Association of New Jersey). They have developed a set of tools to help advocates educate policymakers, allied organizations and the general public about how public policy can improve the lives and financial security of owners of manufactured housing.

CFED's Manufactured Housing Toolkit includes Policy Briefs, Resource Guides and Communication Tools. Policy Briefs are intended to be broadly disseminated and shared with policymakers and allies, while the Resource Guides include legislative analysis, examples of states where certain policies have been adopted, and other detailed information to help advocates in making the case for manufactured housing.  The Communication Tools include both concise messages to share with policymakers and community members, as well as tips for advocates in framing the discussion.

The framework for CFED's Toolkit is the Policy Agenda, developed in collaboration with CFED's policy partners and outlines specific policies that promote the asset-building opportunities of manufactured housing.

As the CFED project matures, they will add additional tools as they are completed, as well as refine existing tools based on feedback from advocates in the field.  You are welcome to  contact CFED  to share your experience using these tools.
