Building value and security in manufactured housing communities
ROC-NH™ helps residents of manufactured-home (sometimes called mobile home) parks come together to buy the land under their houses, build value and security in their homes and create stronger, vibrant communities.
We are the only statewide program in New Hampshire that provides loans, training and technical assistance to convert manufactured-housing (sometimes called mobile homes) parks into cooperatives owned and governed by their residents. One hundred thirteen resident-owned communities in New Hampshire (see map) provide affordable housing for nearly 6,400 families.
ROC-NH does this by:
- Helping homeowners organize co-ops and decide whether purchasing their parks is in their long-term best interest;
- Lending and/or helping arrange loans and grants for the co-op’s predevelopment work, deposit, purchase and rehabilitation projects;
- Helping the co-op establish a board of directors and committees to run it; and
- Providing ongoing technical assistance and training.
Established in 1983, ROC-NH is the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund’s oldest and best-known program. It has been recognized for excellence by the Opportunity Finance Network, Fannie Mae Foundation, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, National Environmental Education & Training Foundation and Citizens Bank.
