Robert C. Larson Housing Policy Leadership Awards

“With workforce and affordable housing needs growing more severe across the country, state and local governments are rising to the challenge with creative, substantive solutions."

Stockton Williams, exceutive director, ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing

About the Award

The Robert C. Larson Housing Policy Leadership Awards, named in honor of a former ULI trustee and ULI Foundation chairman, recognize exemplary state and local policy efforts in support of affordable and workforce housing.

States and localities can undertake a broad range of policy and administrative initiatives to support housing affordability. These can take the form of regulatory or administrative changes such as higher densities and waivers of fees, or programs that provide grants or financing assistance.

The Robert C. Larson Awards recognize innovative state and local policy initiatives that support the creation and preservation of affordable and workforce housing, specifically housing affordable to households earning at or below 120 percent of area median income (AMI).
