NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — With the year coming to an end, there are still many in our community who are struggling to make ends meet.
Nashvillians have been impacted by not only the pandemic, but tornadoes earlier this year and a recent bombing downtown. As many are still facing obstacles as we head into a new year, Metro is offering programs to help residents with basic necessities such as rent and utilities.
The Metro Action Commission has a program for residents to apply for rent and mortgage assistance for a month. Earlier this year, the commission offered a similar program that provided months of help and officials say they are working to bring it back. In the meantime, residents can apply for one-month assistance until September 30.
The commission is also taking applications for utility and gas bill assistance until September 30 as well.
For anyone interested in applying, several factors will be considered such as household income. If you're interested in learning more about the application, click here.
