History

Since 2008, THDA has made it possible for Habitat for Humanity to build 367 homes across Tennessee. A total development value of $42 million; THDA provided $6.9 million of these funds and Habitat raised $35 million through other grant programs and donations of funds, labor and goods. As a result of this partnership, over 1,300 children and adults now live in a newly constructed, energy efficient, affordable home that they own; building strength, stability and self-reliance! Thirty-eight percent of these homes were sold to families of special needs or elderly populations.

Thank you!
