The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) will open its waiting lists for three elderly properties on a first-come, first-served basis in June 2020. Anyone currently on the waiting lists for Gernert Studio Apartments, Carleen Batson Waller Manor or Edgefield Manor will need to reapply.
In order to qualify for elderly housing, the head of household must be at least 62 years old.
Applications will be accepted online only and can be submitted 24 hours a day during the open application period at www.nashville-mdha.org (click on the button that says Apply for Affordable Housing). The application is simple and takes less than 10 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.
Each property has its own waiting list, so applicants interested in all three properties will need to fill out three online applications.
Assistance will be limited to calls in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Please see below for the management office numbers for each property, as well as the waiting list opening dates.
