If you live in a rural area take note the federal government has again taken aim at the off-grid lifestyle and is attempting to ban Tiny Homes and RVs as permanent residences.The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is in the process of putting finalizing proposed regulations that will make living in an RV or a Tiny Home illegal for most people.
The proposed regulations, entitled “FR–5877–P–01 Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations; Revision of Exemption for Recreational Vehicles”, will redefine the industry, and force HUD regulations on those that live in mobile homes. The new regulations are set to modify a current exemption in the Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations. According to the proposed docket, RVs will be defined as “a factory build vehicular structure, not certified as a manufactured home, designed only for recreational use and not as a primary residence or for permanent occupancy.”Thus you will be automatically evicted by the Federal government. No more trailer parks just open road and homelessness. But that’s not all if you happen to be poor in the city and live in the projects like millions across the country do. HUD’s fearless leader Ben Carson has decided you are too lazy and is trying to implement legislation that will triple the rents on those lazy project poor people. Housing Secretary Ben Carson has picked his hometown Detroit as a guinea pig for a new federal program aiming to boost the self-sufficiency of those receiving housing assistance. The plan calls for 10 community hubs, called “EnVision Centers,” located on or near public housing projects, to focus on education, leadership, health, and economic empowerment. Housing Wire reports: Of course Carson’s plan doesn’t account for many of the residents being elderly or working two jobs since many jobs don’t pay a living wage. Carson hopes to establish about 3,000 centers across the country over the next few years, starting with a first cohort of just 10.Let us leave you with two of Ben Carson’s most famous quotes ” Poverty is a state of mind.” “My Mother raised me with NO help from the government we had Food Stamps,Section 8 housing and Welfare,… I went to school on a Pell Grant..but we made it on our own!
