ULI’s Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Awards recognize and honor exemplary developments that demonstrate creativity in expanding housing opportunities for America’s working families.
The Jack Kemp Awards honor developments that ensure housing affordability for a range of incomes, particularly for households earning below 120 percent of area median income (AMI), or mixed-income developments that serve households below 60 percent of AMI. Before 2014, only developments serving those earning 60–120 percent of AMI were eligible. See the pages below for information on previous winners and finalists.
