Take the National Housing Trust Fund Housing Needs Survey!
The National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) is a newly funded federal program that will support THDA's efforts to increase and preserve the supply of rental housing for extremely low-income families, including homeless families. HUD has indicated that the initial allocation of the NHTF to Tennessee will be at least $3 million and that these funds will be made available in the summer of 2016.
In preparation for the start of this new program, we invite you to complete this Housing Needs Survey to ensure that we capture a statewide perspective of the housing needs in our communities and prioritize how the state allocates NHTF dollars.
Don't forget to forward this email and tell your clients, partners, community organizations, and any others throughout the state that would be interested in providing feedback. Our goal is to reach as many Tennesseans as possible.
The survey will be available until Thursday, February 18, 2016 (5:00 PM CST) so be sure to weigh-in now!
