Tennessee Affordable Housing Coalition

To Speak with a Single Voice to Represent Consumers of Affordable Housing

The Tennessee Affordable Housing Coalition (TAHC) is a group of individuals interested and involved in improving the availability and quality of affordable housing in the State of Tennessee. The group includes not-for-profit housing providers, public housing agencies, builders, REALTORS®, lenders and agencies from various governmental levels.

TAHC has three regional councils, one in each Grand Division of the State. If you are interested in joining this group, please click the “Coalition Brochure” to the left and join today!

The goals of TAHC are:
  • Establish and support an active and effective network of educated stakeholders committed to understanding and addressing the needs for affordable housing in Tennessee.
  • Effectively communicate and advocate the need for, and the social and economic impact of, affordable housing in Tennessee to law makers, policy makers, civic leaders, business leaders, housing providers, communities and the general public.
  • Establish and maintain active partnerships with funders of affordable housing initiatives in Tennessee.

General membership is open to anyone interested in furthering the cause of affordable housing in Tennessee. TAHC is expanding by forming three regional councils, one in each Grand Division of the State. Each regional council will have a leader and will meet twice a year – you are encouraged to attend the regional meeting closest to you. Those in the general membership will also be invited to participate on statewide committees in various areas of interest. There will be one statewide meeting annually, held in conjunction with the Governor’s Housing Summit.

There is an annual fee of only $25 to become a general member. The annual term runs from the Governor’s Housing Summit till the next Summit (October-October) and the dues are not pro-rated. In return for your fee, you will receive a quarterly newsletter with information about what is going on in housing in Tennessee of which you will be invited to give input. TAHC will also produce some public information pieces about the importance of affordable housing for use by members. Dues will go toward the cost of any regional or statewide meetings.
