All Parks Alliance for Change is the statewide organization for Minnesota’s 180,000 manufactured home park residents. APAC provides a vehicle for manufactured home owners to express their needs and concerns in their parks and in the larger community. Through education, grassroots organizing and leadership development, APAC works with residents to improve the quality of life in park neighborhoods, protect the rights of park residents, advance public policy change that supports safe, affordable, and stable park communities, and preserve this vital source of affordable housing.

Talking Points

Background

  • The Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund was established in 2007.
  • It replaced 22 local ordinances adopted over a 20 year period.
  • It provided uniformity and universal coverage and de-politicized park closings.
  • It was passed with the support of residents, park owners, and the League of MN Cities.
  • It is funded by a $12 annual fee paid each year by home owners and a fee of up to $3,250 (single section) and $6,000 (multi-section) per home paid by the park owner at closing.
  • Benefits are provided for either moving costs or a home buyout.

"Give to the Max Day" is November 13th!

Help APAC and manufactured home park residents around the state.

Why should you give?

Here are some great reasons:

Residents, before APAC started in 1980,…

  • Didn’t have to be given a written lease
  • Could be evicted without cause
  • Faced the possibility of monthly rent increases of ANY amount
  • Could be asked to leave their home without compensation if a park closed!
  • Did NOT have the legal right to speak out & organize in their communities!

Rush Line Corridor

What is the Rush Line Corridor?

The Rush Line corridor is an 80 mile distance between Hinckley and St. Paul slated for increased public transit service. The 24-member Rush Line Corridor Task Force has been assembled to examine the options available to expand transit based economic development, community preservation, and environmental protection. The Rush Line Corridor ultimately connects suburban communities and rural cities with metropolitan areas.
