HUD and the State Department, in partnership with Ashoka's Changemakers and the American Planning Association, and with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation, are launching an online competition to find the best solutions to integrate and develop affordable, inclusive and sustainable urban housing. Successful solutions will engage communities, entrepreneurs, and key institutions in collaboration, while simultaneously respecting the environment, local cultures and practices.
The competition seeks innovative products, policies, and strategies that mobilize community resources and the ingenuity of designers, planners, environmentalists, developers, bankers, engineers, and civic and government leaders. The competition winners will build affordable, livable, inclusive communities by connecting a broad network of entrepreneurial problem solvers and strengthening citizen engagement that directly involves communities.
