Lost your Manufactured Home to the fire? It pays to replace it with a new, energy-efficient model. Three sources of cash incentives are available to help MH owners build back better.
- The Energy Trust manufactured home replacement pilot is currently offered on a limited scale. The program provides cash incentives for the replacement of homes constructed prior to 1995, with higher incentives for homes built before 1976. Incentives for replacing homes with electric space heat range from $7,500 to $15,000 depending on the size (double wide vs single wide) or vintage of the home. Incentives for homes with gas space heat range from $3,000 to $7,500. Energy Trust will make this program available to manufactured homeowners impacted by the fires, however the total funding available for this specific offer is not yet confirmed at this time.
- In addition to Energy Trust incentives, project participants may qualify for up to $20,000 in funding from low income weatherization programs managed in Jackson County by ACCESS.
- A third funding resource will be offered by Oregon Housing and Community Services. OHCS will be introducing a new program to support home replacements which may be combined with Energy Trust and ACCESS’ programs. The OHCS program is principally oriented to homes located in manufactured home parks that have a regulatory agreement preserving the community as a source of affordable housing, including any fire damaged communities that may be acquired utilizing the state’s manufactured home preservation fund in the weeks to come.
