MDHA TO OPEN WAITING LIST FOR ELDERLY PROJECT-BASED VOUCHER LOCATION AT NOON, JANUARY 28, 2020.

MDHA will be accepting online-only applications for an elderly Project-Based Voucher (PBV) location on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at noon Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020.

In order to qualify for elderly housing, the head of household or spouse must be 62 years old.

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 Tuesday, Jan. 28, 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.

Assistance will be provided by Catholic Charities of Tennessee from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday during the open application period at their C.E. McGruder Family Resource Center at 2013 25th Ave. N. Applicants may also visit a public library to access a computer.

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.

Applicants must meet all eligibility requirements for the PBV location in order to be placed on the waiting list.
