ROC Northwest is a program of the Northwest Cooperative Development Center focused on building affordable housing through cooperative ownership in Washington and North Idaho using the ROC-USA model.
ROC Northwest partners with owners to sell their MHP investment. Once under contract ROC Northwest supports the residents to incorporate as a limited equity housing cooperative with the sole purpose of purchasing their community. At the closing table the resident entity buys the park with financing from dedicated funders. After closing we provide technical assistance to the housing cooperative for a minimum of ten years, assisting them with the task of launching their small business and the management of the community. There are more than 20 resident owned communities in our service territory.
