2006 Workforce Housing Awards Open

NAHB has announced that it is now accepting entries for the second annual Innovations in Workforce Housing Awards (IWHA).

Designed to recognize outstanding examples of workforce housing communities across the nation, the awards also serve to increase awareness of the workforce housing challenge and the ground-breaking solutions implemented by the housing industry, while encouraging builders, developers and related professionals to incorporate such innovative solutions into their own projects.

“The first workforce housing awards were such a success and we want to keep this award program going,” said NAHB President Dave Wilson. “These awards bring national attention to the workforce housing problem and to the creative ways in which builders and developers are inceasing the supply of housing that is affordable to working families.”

IWHA is open to builders, architects, designers, developers and land planners nationwide. Communities that have been completed, or in which the first model has been opened or the first unit has been occupied between Jan. 1, 2003 and Oct. 28, 2005, are eligible to enter.

Entries must be postmarked by Oct. 28.

Winning entries will be selected by a panel of builders, multifamily and land development experts and other industry professionals. Winners will be announced at the 2006 International Builders’ Show in Orlando in January.

Judging criteria include exterior design, interior architecture, sales success, construction quality/cost efficiency, successful management of any impediments and level of cooperation among various stakeholders.

The first winning projects of the Innovations in Workforce Housing award were in Brooklyn, N.Y.; Cobb County, Ga.; Newport News, Va.; Salinas, Cal.; Seattle; and Trenton, N.J.
