In order to apply online, you will need to complete the New Applicant Registration section where you will create a user name and password and then complete the Contact Details section where you will provide your full name, address, social security number and a valid email address and phone number.
If you do not have an email address, one may be obtained by visiting one of several free email providers, including Gmail.com, Hotmail.com, and Yahoo.com. Once you have registered and provided your contact details, you will be able to begin completing your pre-application.
The online pre-application requires that two sections be completed — Basic Details and Waiting List. Please make sure all required information is entered and check all applicable boxes. As you complete each section, click the Save and Next button at the bottom of the page to continue to the next page. If you need to go back to the previous page, you can do so by clicking the Previous button. If you are unable to complete your application, you can log out and return at a later time. Make sure you save the pre-application before logging-out. Your pre-application will not be complete until you have clicked the Submit Application button and receive a Confirmation Number. If you submit your application and do not receive a confirmation number, you must contact the MDHA Asset Management office via email at assetmanagement@Nashville-MDHA.org. MDHA will not address online application issues after the deadline to submit an application expires and the waiting list(s) are closed.
MDHA will accept applications ONLINE ONLY for our Senior (Elderly) Only properties beginning Monday, June 8, 2015 at 7:30am and ending on Monday, July 6, 2015 at 4:00pm.

Carleen Batson Waller Manor - 106 31st Avenue South ( MAP )
All eligible applications submitted during June 8, 2015 at 7:30am and July 6, 2015 at 4:00pm will be assigned a random lottery number and have an equal chance of being placed near the top of the waiting list. Each applicant’s position on the waiting list is NOT on a first-come, first served basis. It’s NOT necessary to stand in line or rush in on the first day to be one of the firsts to submit an application. The date and time, an application is submitted, will have no effect on an applicant’s position on the waiting list. More information on how the process works will be available when the application is completed.
Attention applicants who have already registered for a MDHA Waiting List (Section 8 or Public Housing) prior to June 8, 2015: If you registered and applied to be included on any Waiting List that MDHA had open prior to June 8, 2015, you will need to register again by clicking on the link located below the First Time Visitor area and you will need to use a different username than you last used. You may use the same email address as you used before. You will not be able to login from the Returning Visitors area using the username that you registered prior to June 8, 2015.
