    MANUFACTURED HOME DEMOLITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

     The Manufactured Home Demolition Assistance Program (MHDAP) was adopted by the Onslow County Board of Commissioners in July 2007 and amended in October 2008, October 2009 and September 2012.  In order to be eligible for the MHDAP, a manufactured home owner must first either fill out a voluntary Request for Abandoned Manufactured Home Designation Form or be found to be in violation of either the Onslow County Solid Waste Management Ordinance or the Minimum Housing Ordinance.  Program application forms can be accessed via the link on this page.

    Onslow County acknowledges that the citizen has a responsibility to remove the nuisance from their property; but at the same time recognizes that costs of removal are high and that those high costs can be a legitimate barrier to elimination of the violating structure.  Some people simply do not have the financial means to have an abandoned manufactured home removed.  Under the MHDAP, Onslow County pays a significant percentage of the costs for removal and the violator pays a much lower percentage (in most cases).  Onslow County currently is under contract with the North Carolina Division of Environmental Assistance and Outreach (NCDEAO) to demolish abandoned manufactured homes under the AMH pilot reimbursement grant program.  Eligibility is determined based on household income and number of persons residing in the household.  W-2 tax forms and pay stubs are used to verify income.  Onslow County utilizes an informal bid process in order to contract with local demolition businesses.  By implementing the MHDAP, Onslow County aspires to eliminate a much greater number of abandoned manufactured homes that have become a nuisance to the general public.  In order to apply for the MHDAP, an applicant must do the following:

    1. Fill out the Request for Abandoned Manufactured Home Status Form or furnish a copy of the Notice of Violation (NOV) of the Solid Waste Management Ordinance or Minimum Housing Ordinance to the Onslow County Planning & Development Department.
    2. Complete the one-page MHDAP application, Authorization Agreement, Mortgage/Lien Statement, and Statement of Ownership Forms in their entirety.
    3. Furnish a copy of W-2 tax forms and recent pay stubs or other income documentation for every income-earning member of your household to the Planning & Development Department.
    4. If the applicant is determined to be eligible for the MHDAP, they may be required to make between a 10-30% co-payment of the cost of demolishing the abandoned manufactured home.
