ABOUT US

Community Housing Partnership of Williamson County (CHP) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization working to achieve quality affordable housing for elderly, low income, disabled and work force families of Williamson County, Tennessee. By using housing alternatives, CHP seeks to create, supply, and maintain appropriate housing through rehabilitation, maintenance, and restoration.

CHP came into existence in October of 1994, as a partnership of Williamson County citizens and local governmental units, including Williamson County, the City of Franklin and the United Way of Williamson County. Since then, Williamson County has experienced tremendous population growth, becoming the 17th wealthiest county in 2006, and now has higher-priced housing. Therefore, in this fast-paced growth market, there exists an increased need for safe and reasonably priced housing for the community’s workforce.

Governed by a Board of Directors, CHP has seen significant activity since its inception. CHP currently owns and operates 35 low-income housing rental units for county residents. CHP has done and continues to do extensive homeowner rehabilitation for substandard housing within the county. Partnering with area organizations, local government, and volunteers, CHP has assisted more than 1,200 elderly, disabled, or low-income families with major repairs to their homes. CHP has successfully renovated and sold numerous houses for homeownership in the county using financial resources generated through various agencies. Additional houses have been generated through donated properties from area government and through community donations. The establishment of a certified homebuyers counseling program also embellished the program for single family homeownership at CHP. This addition has enabled CHP to counsel over 150 families in home ownership and help a number of them secure a home.
