Q:

What is "FMHA"?

A:

Many organizations use FMHA as an acronym, but the two most common are the Farmers Home Association and the Florida Manufactured Housing Association. FMHA is also the acronym for the Florida Mental Health Act, or Baker Act of 2002, and also stands for the Family Mental Health Alliance.

The Farmers Home Association is now the Farm Service Agency. It is a branch of the government involved in supporting farmers and agriculture in the U.S. Their goal is to strengthen agricultural communities with a sound economic and environmental future.

The Florida Manufactured Housing Association is a group comprised of multiple businesses that seek to maintain high standards where manufactured homes are considered. They focus on affordability, less restriction and minimizing concerns for owners in Florida.
