2014 Excellence in Housing Award (Large Agency)

Housing Authority of the City of Norwalk

Over the past year, the Housing Authority of the City of Norwalk (NHA) saw the culmination of years of hard work when it received several highly significant awards and grants. Most visibly, in June HUD awarded NHA with a $30 million Choice Neighborhoods implementation grant to rebuild the Washington Village development and revitalize the community. However, also very important to NHA was the award of a Head Start grant which makes it the only housing authority in New England to operate Head Start.

Everett Housing Authority

For the past several years, the Everett Housing Authority (EHA) has partnered with Domestic Violence Services (DVS) of Snohomish County to assist survivors of domestic violence and their families with the provision of project-based voucher assistance, including building a new development on the same property as a DVS facility that includes an emergency shelter, administrative offices for support staff, and a daycare for children of occupants of the shelter.

Rockford Housing Authority

With high crime rates and high unemployment rates, the Rockford Housing Authority (RHA) decided to address the negative headlines and challenges being placed upon its city and its residents. With a collaborative effort of RHA and the Rockford Area Arts Council, it created a platform for creative entrepreneurship called New Mix. The program is so successful that New York City is currently using New Mix for its residents, and Dallas and Chicago are also exploring the implementation of New Mix for their communities.
