The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) has prepared for submittal to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) a draft 2022-2023 Annual Update for Program Year (PY) 5 (2022 Action Plan). The 2022 Action Plan describes community needs and funding priorities for the 2022-2023 program year (June 1, 2022, through May 31, 2023) and serves as Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County’s application for receiving funds for the following programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids (HOPWA).

Proposed funding allocations are intended to address the priority needs identified in the 2018-2023 Consolidated Plan, as amended, and to benefit low and moderate-income (LMI) households and areas. Details regarding specific activities to be funded are provided in the 2022 Action Plan.

MDHA will hold an in-person public hearing on this proposed amendment at 1:30 p.m. CDT, April 28, 2022, at the Vine Hill Studio Apartments’ community room at 625 Benton Ave., Nashville, TN 37204.
