Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Awards

“These are the types of real estate projects that are often the hardest to pull together, but at the same time, the most inspiring to complete. The seven finalists for this year’s award show that affordable and workforce housing is achievable in a wide range of markets, providing economic and social benefits that extend far beyond the developments.”
