NLIHC is accepting applications and nominations for the 2019 Annual Organizing Awards. The NLIHC Organizing Awards recognize outstanding achievement during 2018 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. The awards will be presented at the NLIHC 2019 Housing Policy Forum being held March 27-29, 2019 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C. Application/nominations can be made here.
Nominations for the awards are due by 5:00 pm E.T. on Friday, January 11, 2019.
An Organizing Awards Committee composed of NLIHC board members and previous award winners will determine this year’s honorees. One award will recognize statewide or regional achievements, and one award will recognize citywide or neighborhood achievements. NLIHC will provide two representatives of each honored organization a complimentary Forum registration, 2-3 nights of hotel accommodation, and transportation to Washington, D.C. 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.
