MDHA will open its waiting list for Cumberland View, CWA Plaza Apartments and Edgehill Apartments in March and early April. Anyone currently on the waiting lists for these three properties will need to reapply.

Applications will be accepted online only on a first-come, first-served basis, and can be submitted 24 hours a day during the waiting list periods at (click on the button on the home page that says Apply for Affordable Housing). A valid email address is required, and applicants will be notified by email when their application is received.

The new online only application is more extensive than the previous online only application and will require additional time and information. Those interested in applying may view a sample of the new application by clicking here. This will allow applicants to gather the information needed to complete the application ahead of time.

Applicants in need of assistance with the application may stop by Catholic Charities of Tennessee’s C.E. McGruder Family Resource Center at 2013 25th Ave. North between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the open application periods. Anyone needing access to a computer may visit a public library.
