ERP Information for Grantees and Administrators

The Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA), upon approval of its Board of Directors, allocates $2.7 million annually for the Emergency Repair Program (ERP). The Emergency Repair Program is designed to correct, repair, or replace an essential system and/or critical structural problem for homeowners who are either elderly (age 60 or over) or disabled. The purpose of ERP is to stabilize the homeowner’s residence by making essential repairs to make the home more livable. This is not a comprehensive homeowner rehabilitation program.


Assistance is available to individual homeowners in the form of a grant. The grant does not require that a lien be placed against the property and there is no compliance period. The maximum grant amount is $24,999. Homeowners must apply through one of the nine administering agencies.
