The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) will open its waiting lists for two elderly and disabled properties on a first-come, first-served basis in December 2022. Anyone currently on the waiting lists for Edgefield Manor or Madison Towers will need to reapply.
In order to qualify for elderly and disabled housing, the head of household must be at least 62 years old or have a documented disability.
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 Housing). The application is simple and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Applicants will need to register a new username and password for each property 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.
Edgefield Manor is located at 525 Shelby Ave. in East Nashville and features studio and one-bedroom apartments.
The waiting list will be open from noon Dec. 20, 2022, until 3 p.m. Jan. 10, 2023.
