GENERAL OPERATING SUPPORT— AHS receives no local governmental support and depends fully on grants, general contributions, and sponsorships for special programs to meet its financial needs. Grants for general operating support, at any level, help make our work possible.
RESEARCH/SPECIAL PROGRAMS— AHS conducts research on focused topics that include public policy and best practices that support and increase a mix of housing for healthy communities. Sponsors interested in underwriting research or special programs are encouraged to speak with AHS staff to explore areas of interest.
State of Affordable Housing — The annual SOAH convening this year will focus on current proposed changes to federal support for affordable housing that could have a very significant impact on communities throughout the nation. SOAH is a much anticipated, high profile forum that is well attended by regional leaders and interested citizens.
Thomas P. Leckey Forum — The Leckey Forum occurs during Affordable Housing Month in October each year. This event presents research, best practices, and fresh ideas for promoting and fostering affordable housing development in Arlington and the region, and has become a well-respected and anticipated forum for local government staff and elected officials, affordable housing advocates, residential designers and developers, and interested citizens.
Ellen M. Bozman Affordable Housing Award Celebration — AHS established the Bozman Award in 2009 to honor the late Ellen M. Bozman, one of the founders of AHS and a long-time community activist and elected official in Arlington. The award recognizes an individual or organization that has provided significant leadership and innovation in supporting affordable housing in Arlington or Northern Virginia. This event is highly regarded as a must-attend by public officials, corporate leaders and housing advocates alike.
