Affordable Housing

The Housing Nashville Report provides benchmark data to measure success, an annual report, and an action plan for each year. Priorities focus on how Metro Nashville can fund, build, preserve, and retain affordable housing options.

General Obligation Bonds

In the Fiscal Year 2017-18 Capital Spending Plan, the Mayor and Metro Council allocated $25 million in general obligation bond funds to acquire and rehabilitate existing multi-family rental units, as well as adaptively reusing buildings and developing housing on Metro-owned properties.

Community Land Trust

The Barnes Fund has selected the housing as its partner in creating Nashville’s first Community Land Trust (CLT). A Community Land Trust is an organization that maintains control and oversight of its affordable housing resources through ownership of land. A Community Land Trust is a way in which Nashville can create lasting affordable housing options for its residents. More about the Housing Trust Fund Information
