Two awards bestowed annually by the ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing—the Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award and the Robert C. Larson Housing Policy Leadership Award—recognize efforts by ULI members, other community stakeholders, and public policymakers to increase the supply of affordable housing in communities across the United States.
In 2018, Avenue Place/Avenue Terrace in Houston; Clybourn 1200 in Chicago; Keauhou Lane in Honolulu; Conway Center in Washington, D.C.; and Harbor Place Residences in Haverhill, Massachusetts, were selected as winners of the Kemp Award, which honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people in a broad range of incomes, including those earning no more than 120 percent of the area median income. The jury also recognized the Aspen Skiing Company’s Workforce Housing in Aspen, Colorado, with a Chairman’s Award, a special recognition bestowed for a creative project designed to address the critical shortage of affordable housing for resort workers in Aspen.
The State of New York Mortgage Finance Agency and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority were the recipients of the Larson Award, which recognizes innovative public-sector solutions to the affordable housing challenges.
Together, the 2018 winners for the Kemp and Larson awards made possible more than 1,000 affordable housing units through development and homeowner assistance.
