First, download the Program Criteria below to see if your community is ready to be a Retire Tennessee Community. Next, complete the community Inventory & Assessment Form to see if your community currently has the amenities and resources that retirees are seeking. This is an excellent tool for a committee to use to gather unbiased answers that will tell you if you have the basics that retirees demand.
A TDTD representative will visit your community to speak to a potential committee who will work the program.
The criteria for participation is the guideline used for your program of work for the Retire Tennessee program.
A letter of intent to participate is required by February of each year in order to have your community up and running for retiree recruitment by July, the start of their fiscal year.
