“Ali’s knowledge of how Washington operates combined with her long-standing relationships within the Congress and the Executive Office led the ROC Association’s drive to secure the first-ever $225 million federally funded program to address failing infrastructure in manufactured home communities nationwide. This landmark legislation would not have passed without the 22,000 resident homeowners in our network who educated and engaged their elected leaders with Ali’s guidance. We continue to learn from Ali and the team at S3 to help us navigate the implementation of this new program.”
