Enterprise Foundation Offers MetLife Foundation Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing
Deadline: May 15, 2005
In partnership with the MetLife Foundation, the Enterprise Foundation offers the MetLife Foundation Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing. The program is part of the Enterprise Foundation’s effort to ensure that all low-income people in the United States have the opportunity for fit and affordable housing.
The goals of the program are to showcase models of excellence in the design and management of affordable housing and the operation of supportive housing for special-needs populations; increase the understanding of how to achieve success in providing supportive housing for special-needs populations; increase the understanding of the role of the owner, asset manager, property manager, and tenants in developing, maintaining, and operating housing; provide an unrestricted financial award for agencies that exhibit excellence in asset and/or property management and the provision of special-needs housing; and disseminate model supportive housing and property management programs through publications and the Enterprise Web site.
The awards program recognizes 501(c)(3) community-based or regional nonprofit organizations and Tribes or Tribally Designated Housing Entities that excel in property and asset management or provide housing to people with special needs.
Awards are presented in two categories: 1) Supportive Housing, and 2) Property and Asset Management. The prize money may be used to cover any of the needs of the winning organizations. First-place winners will receive $25,000; second-place winners receive $15,000; and third-place winners receive $10,000.
Visit the Enterprise Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines, eligibility information, and application materials.
