A Virtual Conference on Virginia’s Manufactured Home Communities

Over 350,000 of our fellow Virginians live in manufactured homes. Many of those homes are the building blocks of manufactured home communities—otherwise known as mobile home parks. They are found throughout the state, in our cities, suburbs, and rural neighborhoods. Although these communities provide affordable and accessible housing options, they rarely give residents the security, agency, and financial independence enjoyed by other homeowners. In short, the deck is stacked against them.

Fortunately, things are changing.

Communities are transitioning to nonprofit and resident ownership. Innovations in manufactured home design and construction are leading to high-quality, affordable units. Policymakers are finding ways to make the system work for, not against, park residents. And much of this progress is happening right here in Virginia. MHCCV and our partners produced a week-long virtual conference in October 2020 to explore these changes.

Learn how you can get involved.

Across eight different recorded sessions, you have the opportunity to hear from over 20 experts, practitioners, leaders, and innovators who are collectively making life better for our neighbors living in manufactured home communities.
