AN  ACT  to  amend  the  private housing finance law, in relation to the
  rural mobile home replacement program

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. The private housing finance law is amended by adding a new
article 28 to read as follows:
                             ARTICLE XXVIII
                  RURAL MOBILE HOME REPLACEMENT PROGRAM
SECTION 1240. STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.
        1241. DEFINITIONS.
        1242. RURAL MOBILE HOME REPLACEMENT CONTRACTS.

NEW MODULAR OR STICK-BUILT HOMES ON SITE. OLDER MOBILE HOME  UNITS  WITH
RUSTED, LEAKING METAL ROOFS, METAL-FRAMED WINDOWS WITH INTERIOR TAKE-OUT
STORMS,  AND  METAL  SIDING,  ARE  THOSE  THAT MOST NEED REPLACEMENT. NO
MATTER THE AMOUNT OF REHABILITATION INVESTMENT, THE END RESULT IS UNSAT-
ISFACTORY IN TERMS OF LONGEVITY, ENERGY  EFFICIENCY  AND  AFFORDABILITY.
THE  LEGISLATURE  THEREFORE  FINDS  THAT, IN RURAL AREAS OF THE STATE, A
PROGRAM SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED TO FUND THE REPLACEMENT  OF  MOBILE  HOMES
WITH NEW AFFORDABLE AND ENERGY EFFICIENT MODULAR OR STICK-BUILT HOMES.
  S 1241. DEFINITIONS.  FOR  THE  PURPOSES OF THIS ARTICLE THE FOLLOWING
TERMS SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
  1. "CORPORATION" SHALL MEAN THE HOUSING TRUST FUND CORPORATION  ESTAB-
LISHED IN SECTION FORTY-FIVE-A OF THIS CHAPTER.
  2.  "RURAL  MOBILE HOME REPLACEMENT PROGRAM" OR "PROGRAM" SHALL MEAN A
PROPOSAL BY AN ELIGIBLE APPLICANT FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF  A  DILAPIDATED
MOBILE HOME IN A RURAL AREA WITH A NEW MODULAR OR STICK-BUILT HOME.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
