MDHA will be accepting online only applications for two elderly Project-Based Voucher locations on a first-come, first-served from noon Wednesday, July 10, 2019 until 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, 2019. Depending on the number of applications received, the waiting lists may remain open beyond July 17, 2019.
In order to qualify for elderly housing, the head of household or spouse must be at least 62 years old.
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. MDHA selects families from the PBV waiting list and refers them to the owner of the PBV unit to fill their vacancies.
Applications for the elderly waiting lists will be available online only at www.nashville-mdha.org (click on the button that says Apply for Affordable Housing) beginning at noon on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, 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 username and password and have a valid email address. Once an application is submitted, an email confirming the application has been completed and received will be sent. 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 must meet all eligibility requirements for the PBV location in order to be place on the waiting list.
