The NAHB has created the Innovation in Workforce Housing Awards to recognize outstanding examples of work force housing communities.

August 01, 2004


Bobby Rayburn

President, NAHB

Millions of working families are forced to look for housing 50 miles or more from their jobs.

To recognize outstanding examples of work force housing communities and to encourage builders, developers and others in the housing industry to incorporate innovative solutions into their own projects, the NAHB has created the Innovation in Workforce Housing Awards.

Open to builders, architects, designers, developers and land planners, judging criteria will include exterior design, interior architecture, sales success, construction quality/cost efficiency, successful management of any impediments such as regulatory and/or financial challenges and the level of cooperation among various stakeholders.

Projects must have opened, be first occupied or completed between Jan. 1, 2002 and Oct. 29, 2004.

For more information about the program, go to or call Blake Smith at 800/368-5242, ext. 8583. The application deadline is Oct. 29.
