The 2017 Organizing Award recognizes outstanding achievement during 2016 in state, local and/or resident organizing activity that furthers NLIHC’s mission: achieving socially just public policy that ensures people with the lowest incomes in the United State have affordable and decent homes. Special consideration will be given to nominations that incorporate tenant- or resident-centered organizing. The award will be presented at the NLIHC 2017 Housing Policy Forum, held April 2-4, 2017 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Nominations for the award are due by 5pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.
An Organizing Award Committee composed of NLIHC board members and 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 members and Award Committee members may not nominate an organization with which they are employed or affiliated.
Nominations should contain the following information:
- Name and contact information of the organization receiving the nomination;
- Name and contact information of the individual or organization submitting the nomination (if different from above);
- Description of the organization’s achievement in the area of state, local and/or resident organizing in 2016, and how that achievement has contributed to furthering NLIHC’s mission (800-word maximum); and
