Our Committees

In partnership with NALHFA’s Board of Directors, our diverse committees help drive the organization and develop its policies. Each committee provides important recommendations for consideration in an effort to help advance our mission and vision. Learn more about each committee below.

Awards Committee

NALHFA’s Awards Committee meets to establish the categories, process, and criteria to recognize outstanding efforts of its member agencies and non-profit organizations through its Awards program. Held in conjunction with NALHFA’s Annual Conference, these awards draw submissions from across the United States and in all categories of affordable housing development – single family, multifamily redevelopment, mixed-use, senior housing and many others. The awards committee reviews and vets all award submissions and selects the annual recipients. Through the Awards program, NALHFA strives to highlight achievements in local housing finance and encourage other agencies to look for new and innovative ways of meeting their affordable housing goals.
