The New Face of America’s Public Housing
The New Face of America’s Public Housing competition is funded by the Innovation in American Government Award and administered by the Congress for the New Urbanism. In 2000, the HOPE VI program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) won the Innovation in American Government Award in a field of 1,700 entries. The award is issued by the Ford Foundation, Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and the Council for Excellence in Government. HUD is applying its prize to this award program, to pass on the credit to those projects that are creatively transforming public housing and the lives of its residents. Recipients can serve as role models for communities across the country.
