 Housing

The ETDD Housing Planner works with local, regional and state partners to address the housing needs of East Tennessee. The Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) contracts with ETDD to provide technical assistance to local communities across sixteen counties. ETDD primarily assists with housing-related inquiries and regularly submits grant applications for state and federal housing programs. Through our regional partnerships, we are able to disseminate information about housing programs, funding sources and Fair Housing laws to residents across East Tennessee.

For more information about our Housing Programs, please contact Lindsay Crockett at lcrockett@etdd.org.
