MANUFACTURED HOME DEALERSHIPS ENCOURAGED TO APPLY FOR HOME SHOW FUNDING
Eligible dealers are encouraged to apply for funding to the MMH&RV Home Show Reimbursement Program. Qualifying member dealers can receive up to $2,500 per floor when they conduct a Manufactured Housing Home Show at a local county fair, home show, and/or local exposition. There is a cap of $7,500 per year for individual dealerships and $10,000 per year for dealerships with more than one lot. The effort is tied to the Association’s Image Enhancement Program; a program to encourage more public viewing of manufactured housing products.
Participating dealers must submit a letter to the MMH&RV office applying for the funds to conduct a show at least 30 days prior to the display date. The letter must be returned with a completed copy of the Application Checklist. In addition, the letter must contain the show location 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 served basis, and the Association has 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.
Note: Both applicant dealer and manufacturer of the display home are required to have had active membership during the previous year and remitted Unit Funding proceeds throughout the year.
