Enter Awards Programs for Community Contributions
The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, is seeking entries for two awards recognizing the charitable contributions and altruistic differences building professionals make in their communities.
Entries for both awards are due Friday, Nov. 3.
Every year, in towns and cities across the country, housing professionals perform countless philanthropic projects, both as individuals and as part of their local or state associations.
Each year, NAHB honors their generosity through the National Housing Endowment/Home Builders Care Project of the Year Award and the National Housing Endowment Builder Achievement Award for Outstanding Community Service.
- Home Builders Care Project of the Year Award
The endowment’s Home Builders Care Project of the Year Award, now in its sixth year, recognizes outstanding community service projects developed and implemented by local or state home builders associations (HBAs) or councils affiliated with NAHB.
Winners will receive a $5,000 donation directed to the charity of their choice and will be recognized at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando, Fla. in February.
