The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) will be accepting online-only applications for an elderly and disabled Project-Based Voucher (PBV) waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis from noon Tuesday, April 19, 2022, until 3 p.m. Monday, May 2, 2022.
In order to qualify for elderly and disabled housing, the head of household or spouse must be at least 62 years old or have a documented disability.
The waiting list will be for studio and one-bedroom apartments at Trevecca Towers, two 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.
Applications for the waiting list will be available online only at www.nashville-mdha.org (click on the button that says Apply for Housing) beginning at noon Tuesday, April 19, 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.
Applicants who need assistance applying may call the MDHA information line at 615-782-3960 weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the open enrollment period.
Applicants may also visit public libraries to access a computer. All Nashville Public Library locations have reopened for in-person services. While face coverings are no longer required, they are strongly encouraged for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals while inside Metro buildings, including Nashville Public Library.
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.
