Tennessee Housing Development Agency (“THDA”) received over $53 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) to implement the HOME American Rescue Plan (“ARP”) Program. The purpose of the HOME-ARP Program is to assist individuals or households who are homeless, at-risk of homelessness, or other vulnerable populations.
