"National HOME Doorknocker" Award

from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Design (HUD)

The national HOME Doorknocker Award honors projects for their outstanding work in providing affordable housing to low-income and underserved people. 10-12 Summer Street demonstrates that the challenge of preserving affordable rental housing and producing new affordable homeownership in an affluent community can be met with a combination of a committed community-based housing organization, a sophisticated for-profit developer, local and state bond financing, high quality site planning and building design, and the flexibility of HUD’s HOME program.
