The rising cost of housing is making Nashville unaffordable for many people. The simple fact is that Nashville is not creating enough housing for the demand our city is experiencing.
More than three years ago, Matt helped develop an ambitious affordable housing plan that would have leveraged city assets to create thousands of new homes, and improve the quality of life for residents. That plan was put on hold and the city’s affordable housing crisis has escalated.
Matt will move aggressively to create sustainable funding for affordable housing in Nashville in his first year in office. He also will streamline regulations to make it easier for people to build much-needed housing across the city.
