NLIHC is pleased to announce that J. Ronald Terwilliger has provided a generous matching gift for the 2017 Housing Leadership Awards Reception! Make a contribution today and your support will be matched up to a total value of $20,000!
Each year, NLIHC honors two extraordinary individuals for their contributions to affordable housing. The Cushing Niles Dolbeare Lifetime Service Award, named after NLIHC’s late founder, goes to an individual who has demonstrated a life-long commitment to achieving safe, decent, and affordable homes for low income people. The Edward W. Brooke Housing Leadership Award, named for the late Senator Brooke (R-MA) who championed low income housing as a U.S. senator and later as chair of the NLIHC board of directors, goes to an exemplary housing leader who has championed affordable housing on the national level.
Mr. Terwilliger, founder of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for Housing America’s Families, will receive the 2017 Brooke Award for his outstanding contributions to elevating the national discussion on recalibrating federal housing policy to better serve the needs of low income households. Amy S. Anthony, former CEO and founder of Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH), will receive the 2017 Dolbeare Award for her many years of dedication, service, and innovative leadership in producing and preserving affordable rental housing for low income households.
The Annual Leadership Reception is NLIHC’s single fundraising event, the proceeds of which constitute a significant part of NLIHC’s budget.
