18 Nov Waiting List for Family Affordable Housing Project-Based Voucher Location Now Open
The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) is now accepting online-only applications for a family Project-Based Voucher (PBV) property on a first-come, first-served basis from noon Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021, until noon Friday, Nov. 19, 2021.
Two- and three-bedroom apartments are expected to be available in spring/summer 2022 at 808 at Skyline, a property currently under construction at 808 Skyline Ridge Drive in Madison. Single-person households will not qualify for a two- or three-bedroom PBV unit unless necessary as a reasonable accommodation for a person who has a disability.
Please click here for a direct link to the application. Online-only applications are now being accepted and can be submitted online during the full 24-hour waiting list period at www.nashville-mdha.org (click on the button that says Apply for Housing). The application is simple and takes less than five minutes to complete. Applicants will need to register a new username and password and have a valid email address. Once an application is submitted, applicants will receive an email confirming that the application was submitted successfully. Within 30 days, applicants will receive a follow-up email confirming whether the application has been accepted and placed on the waiting list, or it has been rejected.
Applicants who need assistance applying may call the MDHA information line at 615-782-3960 between noon and 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18.
Applicants may also visit public libraries to access a computer. Consistent with CDC evidence of transmission by vaccinated persons, face coverings are required for both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals while inside Metro buildings, including all Nashville Public Library locations.
Similar to the Tenant-Based Voucher Program, the PBV Program provides low- and moderate-income households with monthly rental assistance. However, PBV assistance is tied to particular units rather than to the family. Eligible families only receive assistance while living in the PBV unit.
