The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency will accept online only applications for certain Project-Based Voucher (PBV) properties on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at noon on Monday, Aug. 20, 2018.

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. MDHA selects families from the PBV waiting list and refers them to the owner of the PBV unit to fill their vacancies.

Applications for the waiting list will be available online only at (click on the button that says Apply for Affordable Housing) beginning at noon on Aug. 20 and continuing until 3 p.m. Aug. 24, 2018, and can be submitted online 24 hours a day during the waiting list period. The application is simple and takes less than five minutes to complete. Applicants will need to register a username and password and have a valid email address. Once an application is submitted, an email confirming the application has been received will be sent. Within 30 days, applicants will receive a follow up email confirming whether the application has been accepted and placed on the waiting list or rejected.

Applicants must meet all eligibility requirements for the PBV location in order to be place on the waiting list.

For anyone needing assistance in completing an online application, a limited number of computers will be available along with MDHA staff at the MDHA Randee Rogers Training Center at 1419 Rosa L. Parks Blvd. from noon until 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 20, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 21 and Wednesday Aug. 22.

Assistance will also be provided by Catholic Charities of Tennessee from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the open application period at their C.E. McGruder Family Resource Center at 2013 25th Ave. North.

Anyone needing access to a computer with internet service may visit a public library.
