The annual Housing North Carolina Awards honor the best in affordable housing development. Plaques are presented at the annual North Carolina Affordable Housing Conference. Recognition is given in the following categories: Home Ownership Developments, Rental Apartments, and Supportive Housing for People with Special Needs.
Entries are judged on:
- Design (attractiveness, appropriateness, innovation, resource efficiency, and other factors).
- Sustainability (provisions to ensure the property will continue to be both affordable and attractive, including deed restrictions, quality construction, energy-saving construction).
- Contribution to the local community (including meeting market needs, furthering local policy goals, and similar factors).
- Special features, such as supportive services to residents, creative financing partnerships, and others.
Most entries now require only a one-page application and short narrative. Applications will be available online when the call for nominations starts in the spring.
