NMA honors the outstanding achievement of housing authorities or associations in affordable housing with the NMA Development Award. One award will be given to an agency with 2500 or more units and one to an agency with 2499 or fewer units. Unit size is based on the total number of housing units.
This award category includes initiatives such as new development or construction, green initiatives, property improvements, or out-of-the-box financing.

One award will be given to an agency with 2500 or more units and one to an agency with 2499 or fewer units. Unit size is based on the total number of housing units.
Each entry must be limited to one specific service initiative. Examples of such initiatives are self-sufficiency programs, community projects, education, or other resident or participant initiatives.
