NLIHC 2020 Housing Organizing Awards to Recognize Excellence in Statewide and Local Housing Advocacy and Campaigns – Apply or Nominate Today!

Submit applications or nominations for the 2020 Annual Organizing Awards today! Two awards are given each year, usually with one award recognizing statewide or regional achievements and another recognizing citywide or neighborhood achievements. Nominations can be submitted online here. The awards will be presented at the NLIHC 2019 Housing Policy Forum being held March 25-27, 2020 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C. 

The NLIHC Organizing Awards recognize outstanding achievement during 2019 in statewide, regional, citywide, neighborhood, and/or resident organizing that furthers NLIHC’s mission of achieving socially just public policy to ensure people with the lowest incomes in the U.S. have affordable and decent homes. Special consideration will be given to nominations that incorporate tenant- or resident-centered organizing.

Nominations for the awards are due by 5:00 pm E.T. on Friday, January 10, 2020.

An Organizing Awards Committee composed of NLIHC board members and previous award winners will determine this year’s honorees. NLIHC will provide two representatives of each honored organization a complimentary Policy Forum registration, 2-3 nights of hotel accommodation, and transportation to Washington, DC to accept their award.

To be eligible, nominated organizations must be current NLIHC members. Organizations may self-nominate. NLIHC board members and Award Committee members may not nominate an organization with which they are employed or affiliated.
