Each year, NLIHC recognizes outstanding local or statewide organizing efforts that contribute to affordable housing for extremely low income residents. NLIHC members are encouraged to submit nominations for NLIHC’s 2016 Organizing Award as soon as possible. The award will be presented at NLIHC’s 2016 Policy Forum: Overcoming Housing Poverty, Achieving Housing Justice, held April 3-5, 2016 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C. Nominations for the award are due by 5pm ET on Friday, February 5, 2016.
The 2016 Organizing Award recognizes outstanding achievement during 2015 in state, local or resident organizing activities that further NLIHC’s mission of achieving socially just public policy that assures people with the lowest incomes in the United State have affordable and decent homes.
An Award Committee composed of NLIHC board members and one or more previous award winners will determine this year’s honoree. Two representatives of the honored organization will receive complimentary conference registration, hotel accommodations and transportation to Washington, D.C. to accept the award.
To be eligible, nominated organizations must be current NLIHC members. Organizations may self-nominate. NLIHC board and Award Committee members may not nominate an organization with which they are employed or affiliated.
