ROC USA® is not your typical affordable housing organization. We are a non-profit social enterprise with a mission to make quality resident ownership viable and successful nationwide and expand economic opportunities for homeowners living in Manufactured Home Communities.
Resident ownership is achieved when homeowners in Manufactured (“Mobile”) Home Communities form a co-op and acquire the underlying land from a commercial investor. To make ownership possible, ROC USA creates purchase opportunities through market development in industry and negotiations with investor-owners, provides training and Technical Assistance through a Network of 12 (and growing) affiliated non-profits and our own national team in states not served by an affiliate, and provides financing through ROC USA® Capital, a U.S. Treasury certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).
ROC USA and affiliates serve customers and support our mission with a national team of 25 and 50 affiliate team members, who stand proudly with low- and moderate-income homeowners who want control of the land under their homes. Our faith in these homeowners and the democratic cooperatives they operate is based on nearly 40 years of experience and success. We use this history and track record to inform and advance public policy at the local, state, and national levels.
Our networked business model allows us to achieve economies of scale and deliver consistently high-quality services and earnings that sustain the whole enterprise— individual Resident Owned Communities (ROCs), Certified Technical Assistance Provider affiliates, and ROC USA itself. Working in a niche commercial real estate market that transacts time-sensitive projects through market-rate financing, operational efficiencies are critical.
Today, ROC USA represents 276 ROCs and more than 18,000 Member-owners in 18 states. ROC USA Capital has provided more than $300 million in community financing. This track record of success has us well positioned for significant growth. By 2028, we expect to serve more than 30,000 Member-Owners in more than 24 states.
