‘Path to Recovery’ forum will focus on manufactured housing
A panel of eight officials will give updates on state programs geared toward Jackson County residents who lost manufactured homes in the 2020 Labor Day fires — including the Almeda fire — along with updates on new mobile home parks and others under construction.
Oregon Rep. Pam Marsh will host an online forum titled “Our Path to Recovery: Manufactured Homes Forum” from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, which will feature representatives from Gov. Kate Brown’s office, the Housing Authority of Jackson County, Oregon Housing and Community Services and the housing director at the nonprofit ACCESS.
The virtual forum will include information for prospective manufactured home owners about what their options are for siting and financing a new manufactured home, according to a news release issued Friday by Marsh’s office.
"Panelists will describe the status of current privately owned parks, discuss a new state-funded affordable modular park, address the FEMA trailer purchase program and detail varied sources of funding assistance to home buyers,“ the release stated.
Spanish and American Sign Language interpreters will be available during the meeting.
