Terwilliger Center for Housing

The goal of the Terwilliger Center for Housing is to advance best practices in residential development and public policy, and to support ULI members and local communities in creating and sustaining a full spectrum of housing opportunities, particularly for low- and moderate-income households.

Established in 2007 with a gift from longtime member and former ULI chairman, J. Ronald Terwilliger, the Center integrates ULI’s wide-ranging housing activities into a program of work with three objectives: to catalyze the production of housing; provide thought leadership on the housing industry; and inspire a broader commitment to housing.  Terwilliger Center activities include: developing practical tools to help developers of affordable housing; engagement with members and housing industry leaders; research and publications; a housing awards program; and an annual housing conference.
