Sign up to be notified when Tennessee rent assistance program opens

Tennesseans will have an opportunity to apply for rent relief.
State housing officials say Tennessee is being allocated some $458 million in federal COVID-19 funds to help qualifying tenants pay bills.
Tasked with administering a majority of those funds, the Tennessee Housing Development Agency reports it is creating a web portal and call center for application assistance, and preparing staff to review and process thousands of payments to landlords and utility providers.
THDA said it is working to open the COVID-19 Rent Relief Program “as soon as is practical.”

    The link to sign up to be notified of rent relief is not working. How do our residents sign up to be notified?
