NASHVILLE, TN — The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) will accept online-only applications for an elderly Project-Based Voucher (PBV) location on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at noon Sept. 22, 2020.
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 list will be available online only at www.nashville-mdha.org (click on the button that says Apply for Affordable Housing) beginning at noon Sept. 22, 2020, 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 must meet all eligibility requirements for the PBV location in order to be placed on the waiting list.
• 26th & Clarksville Phase 3: Brand new one-bedroom units will be available this fall at 2125 26th Ave. N. in Nashville. In order to qualify for the PBV units at this property, the head of household or spouse must be at least 62 years old and have an adjusted income at or below 50 percent of the area median income (AMI).
