The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) will be accepting online-only applications for a family Project-Based Voucher (PBV) property on a first-come, first-served basis from noon Wednesday, June 2, 2021, until 3 p.m. Friday, June 4, 2021.
One-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are expected to be available later this year at Hillside Flats, a property currently under construction on Hillside Avenue in Nashville.
Applications for the waiting lists will be available online only at www.nashville-mdha.org (click on the button that says Apply for Housing) beginning at noon Wednesday, June 2, 2021, 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 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.
Assistance will be provided by Catholic Charities of Tennessee from noon until 3 p.m. during the open application period at their C.E. McGruder Family Resource Center at 2013 25th Ave. N.
Applicants who are 62 and older or who have a disability may call the MDHA information line at 615-782-3960 between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the opening period for assistance.
Applicants may also visit certain public libraries to access a computer. Please note that not all libraries have reopened for in-person services, so call beforehand to confirm which libraries are currently offering in-person services.
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.
