MDHA is committed to serving Nashville residents effectively and responsibly in the area of affordable housing.
Since 2000, MDHA has assisted more than 5,300 Davidson County households through various HOME programs, ranging from new construction to home rehabilitation and downpayment assistance. In 2009 and 2010, MDHA was among the select agencies nationwide to be awarded Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding (through both NSP1 and NSP2) to help stabilize those communities that have been hardest hit by foreclosures and abandonment.
In addition to its ongoing efforts in affordable housing, MDHA has served as the catalyst to other unique and innovative projects that are increasing housing options for low- and moderate-income Nashvillians. Nance Place, a new 109-unit apartment community in the Rolling Mill Hill area of downtown, is providing affordable rental housing to Nashville’s workforce. Work is currently under way on Ryman Lofts, another affordable property at Rolling Mill Hill that will provide affordable rental opportunities to Nashville’s creative community. Work is also underway on Gatewood Flats, a 72-unit community on Dickerson Road which, similar to Nance Place, will provide affordable rental housing for Nashville’s workforce.
