Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association (WMA) is a
nonprofit organization created in 1945 for the exclusive purpose
of promoting and protecting the interests of owners, operators
and developers of manufactured home communities in California.
Resources are still available to help California homeowners
affected by the 2017 and 2018 wildfires and other natural
disasters rebuild their homes. However, the deadline to apply for
these funds is quickly approaching. READ MORE
The California Department of Housing and Community Development
(HCD) is pleased to announce the launch of a new, user-friendly
online portal — Codes and Standards Online Services (C&S OS).
C&S OS is designed
for the public, HCD business partners, and Codes and Standards
customers to access many HCD services online.
Late last night, the Assembly and Senate concluded its business
for the year and is in recess until January 3, 2024.
Over the past year, WMA saw its share of victories, which
included stopping several harmful bills (at least for the
year). Unlike previous legislative years, none of the
measures WMA helped stop for the year were resurrected through a
maneuver that allows stalled bills to be inserted at the last
minute without thorough policy analysis.
Information Bulletin 2022-12 is issued pursuant to Senate
Bill 1307 (Chapter 669, Statutes of 2022) and informs interested
parties of the process for a city, county, or city and county to
assume enforcement responsibility for the Mobilehome Parks Act
and Special Occupancy Parks Act on behalf of HCD.
The Mobilehome Residency Protection Program (MRLPP) was enacted
in January 2019. It charges the Department of Housing and
Community Development (HCD) to administer the program and begin
billing parkowners $10 per permitted space. Click here to read more on how
the program works and how it will affect your park.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD)
Office of Housing is announcing that it has created a new Office
of Manufactured Housing Programs as an independent office
reporting directly to Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal
Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon.
Helping our neighbors is one of the core foundations of American
life. Whenever possible we want to find ways to ease the burden
of those around us. Which is why so many people feel inclined to
support policies such as “rent control.” Stability in housing
pricing sounds like a positive solution. The problem is —
sustainable legislative solutions are never that simple. ARTICLE
