Given the limited space for this answer, I’ll focus on education and affordability.
Regarding schools, I formed an Education Kitchen Cabinet, whose focus is to address the needs of our 21 priority schools. I’ve also increased our education budget. I allocated an additional $34.8M to schools this year, which brings our MNPS allocation to more than $1B, the biggest-ever amount from Metro. Teachers are getting a 4.5% raise - the biggest raise they've seen in 10 yrs. I also launched Nashville GRAD, which will help our MNPS graduates afford the costs of attending Nashville State or TCAT.
To combat affordability, I launched Under One Roof 2029, our largest-ever plan for affordable housing. In the next decade, we aim to invest $500M in affordable housing and call upon the private sector to contribute and additional $250M. Through this initiative, we will build more than 10K new units of affordable housing that will deconcentrate poverty & help residents take the next step toward better lives
