The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) will open waiting lists for two of its properties on a first-come, first-served basis in February 2021. Anyone currently on the waiting lists for Neighborhood Housing and Cheatham Place will need to reapply.
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 both properties will need to fill out two 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.
