The Nevada Housing Alliance, formerly Nevada Manufactured Housing Association, is a non-profit trade and professional association whose member companies build, sell, site, and finance manufactured housing and develop and operate manufactured housing communities and developments.

The association was founded and is run by a group of dedicated volunteer board members to advance the availability and ownership of quality, high value homes, marketed by licensed retailers. Nevada also promotes the purchase of manufactured housing and the development of desirable sites and communities in Nevada. The Association identifies continuing education opportunities for members and works with our regulatory and legislative officials.. Our public, legislative and consumer relations programs are designed to benefit both the industry and the public.

Subject: Red Flags Rule Enforcement to Begin 12-31-10

After several delays, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will begin enforcement of the Red Flags Rule on December 31, 2010. The attached memo provides guidance for manufactured home land-lease communities and retailers. MHI has discussed issues related to communities and retailers with FTC staff and believes that the information contained in the memo reflects how communities and retailers are impacted by the Red Flags Rule. However, the policies developed by MHI members should be reflective of their specific business needs and practices, and should involve legal counsel.
Resources mentioned in the memo are available on MHI’s Web site at: http://www.manufacturedhousing.org/lib/showtemp_detail.asp?id=374&cat=retailer
