Urban Land Institute Announces Winner of 2023 ULI Robert C. Larson Housing Policy Leadership Award
WASHINGTON (November 8, 2023) – The Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing has announced two winners for the 2023 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award and four winners for the 2023 Terwilliger Center Award for Innovation in Attainable Housing.
The Kemp Award was established in 2008 in memory of Jack Kemp, a former secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and a national advisory board member of the ULI Terwilliger Center. It recognizes developments that use innovative financing sources to provide attainable mixed-income housing, primarily focusing on households earning between 60% and 120% of area median income.
The ULI Terwilliger Center created the Award for Innovation in 2022 to recognize unique yet replicable developments that offer or preserve deeper affordability.
The winners of the two awards are selected by a jury chaired by Ron Terwilliger, founder of the ULI Terwilliger Center and chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners.
“Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Kemp Award and Award for Innovation,” said Ron Terwilliger, founder of the ULI Terwilliger Center and chair of the Terwilliger Center housing awards jury. “Each year I am impressed by the creativity and innovation behind these projects and the impact they have on their communities. The developments we honor offer replicable models that we hope will inspire the building of more attainable housing, and we congratulate each development team for their exemplary work.”
