The 2019 nomination period for the annual Housing North Carolina Awards has closed. Thank you to all who submitted nominations and good luck—winners will be announced at a special luncheon on October 7 during the NC Affordable Housing Conference.
The 30-year-old Housing North Carolina Awards honor the best in affordable housing development. 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 are available online when the call for nominations starts each spring.
