The purpose of the Five Year Plan is to assess affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions in Metro Nashville to establish data-driven priorities for the use of public funds, especially Federal funds (Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Emergency Solutions Grant, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS). The new Five Year Plan will cover the period from June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2023.
The Five Year Plan is carried out through annual action plans, which provide a concise summary of actions, activities, and the specific Federal and other resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified in the Five Year Plan. MDHA is developing the 2018-2019 Action Plan for Program Year 1 concurrently with the Five Year Plan.
In developing the Five Year Plan and annual updates, MDHA will follow guidance published by HUD, which is available at: https://www.hudexchange.info/resources/documents/eCon-Planning-Suite-Desk-Guide-IDIS-Conplan-Action-Plan-Caper-Per.pdf and utilize HUD-provided data and maps, which are available at: https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/consolidated-plan/guides/#cpd-maps. MDHA will supplement the HUD-provided data and maps with local and state data and input from stakeholders and citizens obtained through the citizen participation process. Additional Consolidated Plan resources are available at: https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/consolidated-plan/.
We make every effort to engage the residents of Nashville and Davidson County during the development of the Consolidated Plan and for comments on the draft, once published. Please email us at: consolidatedplan@Nashville-MDHA.org to get on our email list. Information will also be provided on our website and social media platforms.
Below is a list of community and stakeholder meetings held during the consultation/draft development phase. In addition, between March 16 and April 13, a survey was made available to gather input on housing and community development needs.
