In celebration of our members’ efforts toward increased, sustainable, and healthier affordable housing options, we will convene HDC membership, local and state elected officials, supporters, and friends for the 12th Annual HDC Celebration on March 25.
In addition to celebrating our collective work, we like to recognize those organizations and/or individuals who have been outstanding champions of HDC’s mission and have made an important impact in the community and affordable housing sector.
In the coming weeks, HDC will convene an award committee to review nominations and recommend awardees to our Board of Directors. This year, we are asking our membership for nominations of individuals, organizations, or public/government agencies, for the following awards:
The Carla Okigwe Award: In honor of the vision and leadership of HDC founding Executive Director, Carla Okigwe, a special award is occasionally given. Individual recipients are chosen for their exemplary contributions to the affordable housing movement and a clear commitment to bettering the lives of those struggling and the communities in which they live.
The Municipal Champion Award: This award recognizes an elected or appointed public official or city/county department/entity, which through exemplary leadership has made exceptional contributions to the state of affordable housing in our community.
Please fill out the nomination form, including information on your nominee, to the best of your ability.
Nominations are due February 7, 2020
