Vermont's mobile home parks provide an important source of affordable housing for about seven thousand Vermont households. The Department oversees the State's mobile home park law which was adopted to protect the safety and rights of owners and residents, and administers rules concerning mobile home park leases, rent increases, sale or closure of mobile home parks, and habitability standards, and conducts an annual registration of Vermont mobile home parks. The Department serves as a resource on mobile and manufactured homes and park issues.
Information about Vermont's housing and community development priorities can be found in the HUD Consolidated Plan.
Three major planning activities are conducted by the State in connection with its receipt of federal funding for housing and community development activities. These plans are developed with public input and further the State’s goals to provide decent, affordable housing, and build strong communities.
