The Housing Leadership Awards Reception held each year in conjunction with our annual Housing Policy Forum, is NLIHC’s only fundraising event.  The awards are: the Cushing Niles Dolbeare Lifetime Service Award, the Edward W. Brooke Housing Leadership Award, and the Sheila Crowley Housing Justice Award.

  • The Sheila Crowley Housing Justice Award is named for former NLIHC President and CEO Sheila Crowley. The Crowley award goes to an outstanding leader who has elevated the conversation around affordable housing for the lowest income people in America. Jennifer Leimaile Ho, will receive this award for her outstanding work to end homelessness and housing poverty in the U.S. since 1999 at Hearth Connection, USICH, HUD, the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, and beyond.
  • The Cushing Niles Dolbeare Lifetime Service Award, named after NLIHC’s late founder who has been referred to as the “godmother” of the affordable housing movement, goes to an individual who has demonstrated an unyielding commitment to achieving safe, decent and affordable homes for low income people over a long period of time Bill Faith, will receive this award for his many years of leadership, dedication and tireless work to secure decent, safe, and affordable homes for the lowest-income people in Ohio and across the U.S.
  • The Edward W. Brooke Housing Leadership Award is named for the late Senator Brooke (R-MA), who championed low-income housing as a U.S. senator and as chair of the NLIHC Board of Directors after he left the Senate.
