Awards for an Organization or Individual Achieving Great Results or Changing the Status Quo in Ending Homelessness

This year, the National Alliance to Ending Homelessness is launching two new awards to honor organizations and individuals in the effort to end homelessness.

Do you know of an organization or individual achieving great results or challenging the status quo to get better outcomes?

One award will honor innovation in the practice of serving people experiencing homelessness and one award will recognize outstanding achievements in ending homelessness.

Please consider nominating an individual or organization that you think should be recognized, or share your own success by nominating your own organization.

  • To make a nomination for either award, please fill out and submit one of the two nominating forms below by Friday, May 5, 2017.
  • Semi-finalists will be chosen this summer and awardees will be announced by August 2017.
