Thousands of older adults with modest financial resources live in manufactured housing communities. These naturally occurring retirement communities provide a safe physical and socially active environment that enable older adults to successfully age in place. Elders, however, risk displacement when the community is closed or rents are increased beyond an affordable level. This webinar will discuss the benefits and challenges that older adults face as residents of manufactured housing communities as well as policies and practices that can support their community.
Presenters: Ishbel Dickens (Executive Director, National Manufactured Home Owners Association), Andrée Tremoulet (Research Associate and Adjunct Assistant Professor, Portland State University), Odette Williamson (Staff Attorney at National Consumer Law Center)
Additional sponsorship for this Webinar is provided by a grant from the Administration on Aging/Administration for Community Living. This webinar is part of a series of National Elder Rights Training Project webinars for the National Legal Resource Center.
