Now is your opportunity to recognize state and local organizations that have made significant contributions to affordable housing. Please take a minute today to nominate an organization for the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC)’s 5th annual State and Local Organizing Award and 3rd annual Resident Organizing Award.
The State and Local Organizing Award recognizes outstanding achievement by an organization during 2013 in organizing and advocacy at the state or local level that furthers NLIHC’s mission of achieving socially just public policy that assures people with the lowest incomes in the United States have affordable and decent homes. Organizations must be NLIHC members to be eligible; organizations are encouraged to self-nominate.
The Resident Organizing Award recognizes outstanding achievement by an organization during 2013 in resident organizing and advocacy that furthers NLIHC’s mission. Organizations must be NLIHC members to be eligible; they may self-nominate. In addition, candidates for the Resident Organizing Award must be tenant-governed organizations, such as a resident council or tenant association.
Nominations for both awards are due by Friday, February 14. Awards will be presented at NLIHC’s 2014 Housing Policy Conference taking place from Sunday, April 27 to Wednesday, April 30, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
