NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two tiny homes are now available in Nashville for low-income tenants with disabilities.

They were built in partnership with TennCare and comply with standards in the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Each home is move-in ready for a $750 a month with utilities included.

City leaders said they hope it's a start in welcoming all people to Nashville.

"We are going to have to have a place that we can call home. Everybody's not as fortunate here in Metro-Davidson County, but we are going to create an atmosphere to where everyone can call a place home," said Steve Fishell.

Nashville is one of four cities in the state to participate in this program.
