Thank you! I already have Section 8 but I recently moved and need an "advocate" to help me communicate with someone who has been non responsive and is, in short, incompetent placing my housing in jeopardy.I have Aspergers and some people have difficulty understanding that just because I am differently abled, I am not an idiot!People with Aspergers tend to speak differently and have different body gestures that culturally incompetent people (such as this particular leasing agent) perceive as ???Bottom line,She messed up and asked me NOT to call her boss (Mr. Rusty Lawrence) because he worked with Kenton Dickerson, myself, Scott Wyatt and other Government employees before I developed a tumor in 2008.I now have a 14mm tumor on my spine, that causes neurological symptoms~ But my brain is fully in tact and surgery is too dangerous.Remember Floyd? He needed a speech machine! Pam Townsend needed special voice translation software to use her PC. At times, I do too, however I only have an iPhone and broken computer.People with Aspergers are not stupid or uninformed, quite the opposite! We are just too pedantic in speech for neuro-typical to understand! We're also pretty arrogant and "obnoxious" when people don't ask the right questions.Also, I need to review my file with your agency because it had come to my attention that my SSDI benefits may be incorrect due to an error made by the IRS and Metro Government (I have a pension or something that changes my eligibility status; increases my monthly income from $688 to ????Stacy Youngman has the file and knows about the SSA / IRS situation (very complicated to explain to non-lawyers)See how verbose I am? Just kidding! It's Friday, and I will follow up on Monday.Thank you,Elyssa Durant, Ed.M.אל

FORWARDED from MDHA:
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program will open its waitlist registration process for one week starting Monday, March 26 @ 7:30 a.m. until Friday, March 30 @ 4 p.m. On Monday morning, March 26, you will be able to find the application form on MDHA’s website: http://www.nashville-mdha.org/
For the first time, interested people will be able to register online. This type of online application is highly encouraged - AND avoids having to wait in long lines at MDHA Rental Assistance Dept. offices on Dew Street. This online process should take roughly 10 minutes.
Generally, the online process involves completing a registration form with basic information such as an email address, street address, phone number, and Social Security number, etc.
After all the registration forms have been entered into a database individuals will be contacted to schedule an actual appointment.
Showing up early in the week/registering early will not guarantee an earlier appointment, because names from the registration forms will be selected by lottery and not time/date stamped as in the past.
In addition to the online method, applications may be mailed (postmarked by March 31, 2012) or hand-delivered to 620 Dew Street during the registration week. You can print out the online application to complete and submit. A map to 620 Dew Street is attached.
Applications that are emailed or faxed to MDHA will NOT be considered.
