Louisiana Mobile Home Residents Eligible for Free Money
If you live in Louisiana and currently reside in a mobile home, trailer, or manufactured home you could be eligible to earn a little extra income just by answering a few questions. The questions are being asked by the University of North Texas Department of Emergency Management and Disaster. And your answers will hopefully help guide them and the manufacturers of mobile homes, trailers, and manufactured housing into creating a safe product.
Researchers at the National Weather Service have determined that since 1975 about one-third of all fatalities accounted for in tornadoes and severe storms come from mobile homes or manufactured housing. Although great strides have been made in making these structures as safe as possible, there is still more that needs to be learned and that's where your participation in this study can help.
In order to participate in the survey you'll need to be at least 18 years old. You'll also need to own and live in a mobile or manufactured home as your primary residence.
The study seeks to find better ways to support the anchorage systems for mobile homes and manufactured housing. It is hoped the information gotten from the study will help those who build these structures design safer and stronger homes for the families that use them.
Once you've scanned the QR Code that you see in the image above, you'll be taken to a site where you will complete 10 brief questions in a survey. You're not compensated for taking the online survey. However, if you are chosen to participate deeper in the study you will be interviewed for approximately one hour by researchers, and in exchange for your time you'll be given a $25 gift card.
If the QR Code isn't working for you, you may follow this link to the preliminary survey.
Again, to be eligible for this survey you must live in a mobile or manufactured home in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, or Kentucky. Funding for this project is made possible by NOAA's Vortex Southeast Program in collaboration with researchers at the University of Oklahoma and Missouri University of Science and Technology.
