CalHome Program Notice of Funding Availability $20 million available for first-time homebuyer and housing rehabilitation assistance for mobilehomes/manufactured homes and communities
The California Department of Housing and Community Development
(HCD) announced the 2021 CalHome program Notice of Funding
Availability (NOFA) for approximately $57 million, with $20
million reserved for mobilehome assistance in a mobilehome or
manufactured home community.
What can the funds be used for?
These funds can be used exclusively for purchase, rehabilitation,
or replacement of a mobilehome, not on a permanent foundation.
Any unused set-aside funds under this NOFA will roll back into
the general program funds.
AB 832, COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act (CTRA) expired on September
30, 2021. The Legislature did not extend the Eviction Moratorium
and is adjourned until January 3, 2022. Therefore, parkowners
need to take steps now to ensure they are in a position to move
forward to deal with residents who have failed to pay the rent.
As California’s eviction moratorium comes to an end, it’s
important that parks and managers are using the correct forms
when starting the lease termination process. WMA has provided the
form “3/60 Notice to Pay Rent October 2021 – March 2022″.
These are forms suggested for Management’s use when a resident
requests a deferral of rent. These are only suggested forms, not
intended as legal advice. We strongly recommend that you consult
with your legal advisor.
At the California Department of Housing and Community
Development, we work to protect the health and safety of
residents living in mobilehome parks by inspecting all park
common areas, buildings, lots, exterior portions of manufactured
homes and mobilehomes, and accessory structures within the parks.
