The Housing Fund CARES
Assisting in the distribution of CARES Act Funding was a great opportunity for us to fulfill our mission to provide resources to meet the needs of our community. Unfortunately, we have distributed all grant dollars and we are unable to provide any additional COVID-related financial assistance at this time.
There are other local organizations that still have resources and support for those who have been impacted by COVID-19. A list of these organizations can be found here: https://www.nashvilleresponsefund.com/individuals
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance to help connect you to the resources that you need.
