NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Metropolitan Action Commission is offering help to Nashville homeowners and renters.
On Monday, they'll begin accepting applications for the Metro Action Recovery Program, which helps residents catch up on monthly payments.
“These are families who are working everyday, but because children are home now so there is a greater impact on the food bill, the electricity bill and some other things that are happening,” said media spokesperson for Metro Action, Lisa McCrady.
Those who qualify can receive up to three or six months of Emergency Rent and Mortgage Assistance to residents in danger of eviction or foreclosure because they have or will fall behind in rent or mortgage payments due to loss of income due to COVID-19.
“This is an amazing opportunity for Metro Action to meet the needs of many Davidson County residents who are now facing eviction and foreclosure because they are behind multiple months in housing payments,” said Marvin D. Cox, Director of Family and Community Services in a press release.
Applicants must meet specific criteria. Among others, the applicant must be a Davidson County resident, in good standing prior to March and has not been accepted into any other repayment program.
