About the Award

ULI’s Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Awards, established in 2008 and named in memory of Jack Kemp, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, recognize exemplary developments that demonstrate creativity in expanding housing opportunities for America’s working families.

The Jack Kemp Awards honor developments that meet affordable and workforce housing needs and help to create mixed-income communities of opportunity.  The award focuses on developments that serve households earning up to 120 percent of area median income (AMI).
