MHCCV is here to help residents, advocates, housing providers, and decision-makers with the highest quality information about preserving manufactured home communities.
MHC 101: An Introduction to 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. These neighborhoods can be just a small handful of homes on a small property, or hundreds of units in a master-planned community. 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.
This two-page fact sheet gives a concise overview of MHCCV and its goals.
Central Virginia Study
In 2016, MHCCV and project:HOMES commissioned a report to provide, for the first time, a complete assessment of the existing conditions of mobile home parks in the Central Virginia region. The research includes analysis of the demographic trends and socioeconomic status for households in mobile homes, as well as a detailed quality survey of more than 50 mobile home parks across the region.
