ULI Celebrates Pride Month
WASHINGTON (June 2, 2023) — The Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing has announced four finalists for this year’s Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award and eight finalists for the Terwilliger Center Award for Innovation in Attainable Housing.
“At a time when cities across the nation are struggling to build the homes their residents, businesses, and local economies require to thrive, ULI’s Terwilliger Center for Housing is privileged to share this year’s Kemp Award and Innovation Award finalists,” said Christopher Ptomey, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing. “Each of this year’s finalists demonstrates a creative blend of tools, strategies, and relationships aligned to deliver high quality homes at costs affordable to moderate- and lower-income households. We congratulate each firm and development team for their exemplary work.”
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 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 Terwilliger Center created the Award for Innovation in 2022 to recognize unique yet replicable developments that offer or preserve deeper affordability.
