In a complement to our advocacy and research on manufactured housing, Reinvestment Partners invested $190,000 into the Burnsville Land Community as a silent second mortgage to provide long term affordability and preservation for this 14-unit manufactured housing community in Western, North Carolina.

Designed as a land-trust with resident involvement, we are pleased to have partnered with the Center for Participatory Change, the NC Housing Coalition and a number of funders to model the first redevelopment of a manufactured housing community into nonprofit control.
