NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Starting today the Metro Action Commission will begin accepting applications to their Action Recovery Program.

The program provides three to six months of emergency rent and mortgage assistance to help the people in danger of eviction or foreclosure because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“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.

The criteria to qualify is very specific.

You must be a resident of Davidson County and not already accepted into any other repayment program. The household income must not exceed 80 percent of the area median income listed below:
