HAND 29th Annual Meeting & Housing Expo


The Show Will Go On!
Spring 2021

Until then, join us for the Virtual Housing Achievement Awards & Children’s Essay Contest Presentation!




We have made the decision to cancel the 29th Annual Meeting & Housing Expo due to the impacts of COVID-19This was a tough decision, but the well-being and safety of our members is our top priority.  We plan to convene in June 2021 after it has been deemed safe for us to gather. We look forward to celebrating HAND’s 30th Anniversary with you and your team!

In the absence of the Annual Meeting & Housing Expo, Join us for the presentation of the Housing Achievement Awards & Children’s Essay Contest on June 17th from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm! This virtual ceremony will honor organizations and individuals that have provided outstanding affordable housing projects, programs, and support for low- and moderate-income residents. The purpose of the Housing Achievement Awards remains to recognize creative, innovative approaches in the industry, which result in quality developments and programs.

We will also hear from the winner of the first-ever Annual Children’s Essay Contest. This year’s competition is themed, If I Were the Mayor. Students were challenged to write about the kind of region they envision for their future, while reflecting on their own experiences and the legacy they would like to leave if held responsible for the outcomes for an entire jurisdiction. 

More details to come! In the interim, you can learn more about how HAND is operating over the coming weeks and months here.
