Ostego County New York was awarded a Federal Community Development Block Grant to rehabilitate the “mobile homes” of low and moderate income families. CNYNews tells MHProNews that the County has recognized how “important and widespread” the need is for manufactured housing as a form of affordable home ownership. Key points in the program included 1) to ensure the long-term viability of existing mobile homes as permanent and affordable housing, and 2) to provide accessibility modifications for disabled individuals and to help household members aging in place. Interested parties should contact the project manager Otsego Rural Housing Assistance (ORHA) at 607-286-7244.
