  • Eliminating Food Insecurity in Public Housing (with 412 Food Rescue)

“We’re proud to honor the hard work and creativity our members have shown in meeting the needs of their local communities,” said NAHRO CEO Adrianne Todman. “Now more than ever, it’s important to showcase their solutions and share them with others who might get inspired.”

The NAHRO Awards of Merit program was created 20 years ago to recognize agencies who found innovative ways of making a difference in their communities and in the lives of the people they serve by creating affordable housing, revitalizing their neighborhoods, and developing initiatives such as job readiness programs, public-private partnerships, disaster prevention projects, and more.

“The Awards of Merit catalog is more than a list of winners,” said NAHRO CEO Adrianne Todman. “It’s a yearly compendium of some of the best work being done by housers and community builders nationwide. Congratulations to this year’s honorees!”

HACP is honored to be among this list of winners, and to be among some of the best Housing Authorities in the country. These awards are the culmination of our hard work to innovate and provide the best for our residents.

“HACP is grateful for all the partnerships and people that make this work possible,” said HACP Executive Director Caster D. Binion. “We look forward to rolling up our sleeves and continuing the work of improving our communities. This is only the beginning”
