NLIHC recognizes outstanding achievement in state, local and resident organizing each year through its Organizing Award. Organizing Award nominees have engaged in unique campaigns, programs, and methods in work that furthers NLIHC’s mission of achieving socially just public policy that ensures people with the lowest incomes in the U.S. have affordable and decent homes. The winner of the 2017 Organizing Award will be announced and the award presented on Monday, April 3 at the NLIHC 2017 Housing Policy Forum in Washington, DC.
The NLIHC Organizing Award Selection Committee reviewed a total of twelve outstanding nominations from organizations large and small across the country engaged in statewide, countywide, and neighborhood organizing. The nominees carried out innovative advocacy organizing efforts to achieve an array of solutions to the affordable housing and homelessness crises in their communities, all centered on addressing the rental housing needs of the lowest income households.
NLIHC’s On the Home Front blog will showcase the significant accomplishments and ongoing work of this year’s Organizing Award nominees each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, beginning March 13. The series of blogs will culminate with an entry on Monday, April 3, announcing this year’s winners and sharing their recent successes.
