The deadline for submitting nominations for the 2019 NLIHC Housing Organizing Awards is Friday, January 11, 2019. The awards recognize outstanding achievement during 2018 in statewide, regional, citywide, neighborhood, and/or resident organizing that furthers NLIHC’s mission of ensuring the lowest income people have decent, affordable homes. One award recognizes statewide or regional achievements, and one recognizes citywide or neighborhood achievements. Special consideration will be given to nominations that incorporate tenant- or resident-centered organizing. Learn more and make nominations at: https://bit.ly/2PrcUc7
The awards will be presented at the NLIHC 2019 Housing Policy Forum, held March 27-29, 2019, at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C. NLIHC will provide two representatives of each honored organization a complimentary Forum registration, 2-3 nights of 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. An Organizing Awards Committee composed of NLIHC board members and previous award winners will determine this year’s honorees.
Nominations for the awards are due by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, January 11, 2019.
