HOME SHOW FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR MANUFACTURED HOUSING DEALERSHIPS
Members are encouraged to apply for funding from the association's Manufactured Housing Image Enhancement Home Show Program. This program was revised by the Board and now qualifying member dealers can receive $2,000 per floor, or up to $6,000 a year, when they conduct a Manufactured Housing Home Show at a local county fair, home show, and/or local exposition. The effort is directly tied to the association's overall Image Enhancement Program for Manufactured Housing. By encouraging home shows the association can put in place a program to encourage more public viewing of today's manufactured homes.
Dealers wishing to participate must write a letter to the MMH&RV Office applying for the funds to conduct a show. The letter should be submitted to the MMH&RV Office at least 30 days prior to the display date. Further, the letter must be returned with a completed copy of the Reimbursement Checklist. In addition, the letter must contain the show location where the dealer will be participating, along with relevant information about the show dates, times, and places. No funding will be available to members participating in their own dealer exclusive shows. Funding will be determined on a first come, first serve basis and has a set a limited budget for this program. All applications will be reviewed by the MMH&RV Home Show Committee for compliance, and funds will be remitted upon your follow up and confirmation that you have successfully participated in the program.
