THDA offers help to Irma victims seeking housing in Tennessee
WVLT/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday September 14, 2017

The Tennessee Housing Development Agency is waiving all family income and one- year lease restrictions on vacant apartment units in its LIHTC program for victims of Hurricane Irma who temporarily relocate to Tennessee, WVLT reports.

Typically, rental properties built or renovated with the help of federal housing tax credits under the LIHTC program must restrict the lease of some or all units to households of low income.

However, THDA and the IRS have announced they will waive these income restrictions if the prospective tenant has been displaced by Hurricane Irma from one of the 16 counties in Florida that have been declared federal disaster areas.

Displaced households from Hurricane Irma looking for short-term or long-term housing in Tennessee can find vacancies at LIHTC properties and other rental options by visiting TNHousingSearch.com, a free resource managed by THDA to help families find affordable housing.
