Housing Stock Upgrade Initiative (HSUI) , Curry County

The Housing Stock Upgrade Initiative (HUSI) program was conceived to either upgrade or replace some of the worst mobile homes and manufactured homes in the state that have long outlived their designed life span.  The objective of the project is to identify and integrate sufficient resources, incentives and savings necessary so that homeowners have the opportunity to pursue the replacement of rural substandard housing, specifically obsolete manufactured homes or  MMHATs (Mobile Homes, Manufactured Homes and Trailers), in a systematic manner.  It is expected that options are to be offered to homeowners through a simplified approach that is financially realistic.  The project team may also help to identify potential risks and liabilities that will need to be factored into individual financial evaluations.

Results

In November 2013, NeighborWorks Umpqua, an OS project partner, received a grant for over $450,000 from the Meyer Memorial Foundation that will jump start the reHome Oregon project in Curry County, and eventually beyond.

    Hello,

    I watched with interest today the Oregon Solutions presentation at the Curry County Commissioner meeting. We live in a 1993 manufactured home that has major problems with holes in the floor, siding that is deteriorating and wallboards with water damage. We have tried so hard to keep the home up, unfortunately (we are on a fixed income). There is so much water damage to our home that it has become overwhelming. We have tried to get loans but due to our income and other issues have been unsuccessful. So we’ve been using the funds we have to fix the problems by ourselves. We are proud people and it is hard for us to ask for help. That is why it is so hard for me to write this message. We need help with funds so we can continue fix the problems with our house. Please, can you refer me to an agency that can help us?

    Thank you so much for the work of this agency and their goal to help those who are in need.
