Inspections During COVID-19

THDA continues to closely monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 in Tennessee, and is issuing guidance to help our programs persevere through this pandemic.

Effective immediately and until further notice, THDA staff will not be conducting in-person inspections. In order to continue and progress through our HOME and National Housing Trust Fund Projects, all inspections will be conducted through remote desktop reviews submitted electronically and a live virtual physical inspection.

Please find the Virtual Physical Inspection Protocol Policy created by THDA to enable completion of projects already commenced, which need to be concluded within the next 30 days: THDA Virtual Physical Inspection Protocol

THDA will continue to communicate with its Grantees and Administrators as further information and guidance is received concerning the COVID-19 as it relates to the HOME and National Housing Trust Fund Program.

THDA values your partnership and appreciates your continued support during these uncertain times. If you have any questions, please call Dwayne Hicks at 615-815-2044 or e-mail your HOME Coordinator.
