Relocation Trust Fund

Right of First Refusal

On May 24, 2019, the Minnesota Legislature passed proposals backed by All Parks Alliance for Change (APAC), and endorsed by the Homes for All MN coalition, to close loopholes in the state Right of First Refusal law. Flaws in the existing law doomed a 2017 attempt by residents of the Lowry Grove manufactured (mobile) home park to buy their community and prevent it from being closed by a developer. A newly strengthened and streamlined process passed today as part of the Omnibus Agriculture Department, Rural Development, and Housing Finance Bill.
