Dear friends and neighbors, are you interested in owning your own mobile or modular home or know someone else who is? Would you like to know more about the most energy efficient options available and some new programs to help make those new homes affordable? Do you have a home that could use energy updates?
You’re invited to an important presentation about energy efficient and very affordable home ownership and rehab options. There are several nonprofit and government programs that help people find and buy high quality, highly energy efficient homes, even for those who live on limited incomes. Whether you have a lot of your own, or might want to lease a lot in a mobile home park, we want you to understand your options to pay less in energy costs and live comfortably!
For example, USDA Rural Development can offer 100% financing to very low to moderate income families in manufactured home parks. They also have a program to repair homes in parks for very low income borrowers. And, there are new ultra-energy-efficient units that can be paired with solar panels to reduce yearly energy costs to about $100, with programs to help with the up-front costs.
The program is free and open to the public. Bring a Friend! Light refreshments will be served.
After introductions to each program, and to some new home options on the market, program staff will help you figure out which programs you might be eligible for and your next steps if you’d like to work with them to buy a new home or improve your own. Please come on March 5th to find out which of these programs may best suit your needs.
I hope to see you there!
