Park Improvements through Small-Scale Capital Infill

Park Improvements through Small-Scale Capital Infill are available to owners of mobile home parks in Vermont (also known as manufactured home communities) to infill vacant or abandoned lots within the park. The park and owner must be registered in the Registry of Vermont Mobile Home Parks to be eligible for the program. Owners can be awarded up to $20,000 per lot. However, parks applying to infill more than 2 lots will require an additional review process, with a maximum of 10 lots per park. Lot must be made available for a homeowner, not rental home.  Projects must be approved before work begins. MHIR does not pay for retroactive work.
