31 Oct MDHA Accepting Pre-Screening Forms for Homeowner Rehabilitation Program
The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency is accepting pre-screening forms for its Homeowner Rehabilitation Program, which is designed to correct health and safety issues in Davidson County owner-occupied homes. The program preserves existing affordable housing stock by providing assistance to repair major housing systems, such as roofing, electrical, plumbing, accessibility and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
Eligible households must have an annual household income of less than 80 percent of Area Median Income (AMI), which equals $54,800 for a family of four and $38,400 for an individual. Eligible properties are single family houses or condominiums in Davidson County that are the owner’s primary residence. All properties must be current on property taxes, mortgages payments and homeowner’s insurance and flood insurance, if applicable.
Assistance will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, upon receipt of a completed pre-screening form and application and determination of eligibility and priority status, until funding is exhausted. Priority for assistance will be given to homes occupied by residents age 62 or older, persons who have disabilities, homeowners that have never received assistance through the program before and very low-income homeowners, who earn less than 50 percent of AMI, which equals $34,250 for a family of four and $24,000 for an individual.
Pre-screening forms are available by clicking here and at MDHA’s Community Development Department at 712 South Sixth Street in Nashville between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays. To receive a pre-screening form by mail, request accommodation or language assistance, call 615-252-8530.
