The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) has opened a waiting list for an elderly and disabled Project-Based Voucher (PBV) property on a first-come, first-served basis.

In order to qualify for elderly housing, the head of household or spouse must be at least 62 years old or have a documented disability.

Studio and one-bedroom apartments are now available at Trevecca Towers, two newly renovated elderly and disabled properties on Lester Avenue in Nashville. In order to qualify, applicants must be 62 or older or have a documented disability and have an adjusted income at or below 50 percent of the area median income.

Please click here for a direct link to the application. Online-only applications for the PBV property can be submitted online 24 hours a day while the waiting list is open. The application is simple and takes less than five minutes to complete. Applicants will need to register a new username and password and have a valid email address. Once an application is submitted, applicants will receive an email confirming that the application was submitted successfully. Within 30 days, applicants will receive a follow-up email confirming whether the application has been accepted and placed on the waiting list, or it has been rejected.

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.
