Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act
Amendments to the 2018-2023 Consolidated Plan and
2019-2020 Annual Action Plan
Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) has substantial amendments that are forthcoming to the 2018-2023 Consolidated Plan and 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan. The documents will be posted as soon as they are available. These amendments are necessary to facilitate the receipt and distribution of critical funding to assist in the response and recovery of COVID-19.
What is the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES)?
On March 27, 2020, Congress passed the CARES Act. The Act will support preparation for and response to the community impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and identified additional funding for the following:
Per the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), these funds are to be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
In addition to the substantial amendments, a separate ESG-CV Action Plan has been released to help quickly expedite the use of ESG-CV funds for individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance; and to support additional homeless assistance and homelessness prevention activities to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.

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.

The previous Consolidated Plan covered the period from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2015, and Metro Nashville was in program year three of the five-year plan when the planning process began for a new plan. Although there were two remaining years under the previous five-year plan, MDHA elected to undertake a new Consolidated Plan due to significant changes in Metro Nashville since 2009: the May 2010 Flood, reduced federal funding, and new federal laws and regulations. These drastic events, combined with the economic crisis of recent years, have changed housing and community needs throughout the county. A new Consolidated Plan allowed the City to identify the most pressing needs and develop the most effective strategies to meet those needs for the next five years (April 1, 2013 – March 31, 2018). MDHA updated the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) concurrently with the development of the 2013-2018 Consolidated Plan. During the development of the Consolidated Plan, the following priority needs were identified:
Increase the Supply of Affordable Housing;
Strengthen Collaboration Among the Network of Service Providers;
Increase Access to Healthy Food Choices;
Develop and Implement Place-Based Strategies for Community Development;
Provide Summer Programs for Low- and Moderate-Income Children and Youth;
Provide Housing Assistance for Persons With HIV/AIDS; and
Affirmatively Further Fair Housing.
The Consolidated 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 Plan.
