About the MMHR Program

The MMHR Program is administered by the Housing Trust Fund Corporation (HTFC) through the Office of Community Renewal (OCR).  The program uses 2016 State Program year funds to assist homeowners to replace dilapidated mobile or manufactured homes that are sited on land owned by the homeowner, with a new manufactured, modular or site built home.

Replaced units must meet NYS and/or Local Code upon completion and if a manufactured product, be installed according to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards at 24 CFR Part 3280 and Federal HOME Program Permanent Foundation Requirements at 24 CFR 92.251(e) and HTFC Manufactured Home Replacement Design Standards upon completion. Rehabilitation of a mobile or manufactured home is not an eligible activity.
