It is without a doubt that most of these folks love the fact that they have their independence at a home they took years to pay for.they have been good citizens and simply cant restart life at this stage in life.
The Federal,State and Local Programs have no trouble building Projects that soon become disasters.
These folks have worked for years to be good citizens Time has simply worn out their housing.It is now far more costly to repair and refurbish the aging modulars and mobile homes.The housing standards are far more strict than in recent years.replacing the old units will benefit all those concerned with safety.
You may examine this information at this website to verify what I say here.it is information free to the public from New York State DHCR Statewide Manufactured Home Replacement Initiative .The web address is www.nysdhcr.gov.There maybe a program for you if your interested where ever you may live.
Theres also a petition online(no profit) @ change.org ,that you may examine and sign if you agree.
If there's other Places doing this then get on the net and lets see what we can accomplish.Information is power and we the people need to use it wisely.
Bye for now and take care of you and yours.
NOTE FROM AUTHOR: The petition was taken down when the person was told the state only gives funds to counties that are not prosperous....I guess no one really cares if an elderly person burns in a home that is
not up to code from that persons condition...Mankind,The word is such an oxymoron!
