Nashville’s Housing Crisis

Join the Battle

Solving Nashville’s Affordable Housing Crisis

Voted one of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Places to Live, Nashville sees over one hundred new residents arrive every week. Offering an abundance of culture, a temperate climate and a distinct quality of life, our vibrant town and its thriving suburbs appeal to a diverse mix of college students, young adults, growing families, musicians, retirees, and workforce jobseekers. And, while the city is more affordable than many metro areas, its increasingly competitive housing market has become a financial burden for many locals.

The Crisis

Today, too many people in Nashville lack a safe, stable and affordable place to call home. Those earning less than 60 percent of the city’s median income ($52,026) struggle to find and maintain a Nashville residence while providing for their household’s most basic needs. Reports from the mayor’s office predict the affordable housing shortage will rise to nearly 31,000 units by 2025. These startling numbers will only change if we take aggressive action to expand homeless, low-income, and workforce housing options.

The Solution

Urban Housing Solutions is a local nonprofit committed to helping solve Nashville’s affordable housing crisis. Our team plays a vital role in the strength and success of Nashville neighborhoods by partnering with individuals, families, and businesses to address unmet housing needs. Cultivating communities of innovation and opportunity, our team is more than the buildings we develop. We are community advocates: connecting homeless, vulnerable, and underemployed residents with accessible housing and critical services.
