The 2015 Ellen M. Bozman Affordable Housing Award was shared by recipients who have helped build Foundations for affordable housing in Arlington, through policy and leadership or through financial support.

Walter Tejada has shaped affordable housing policy for the last 15 years, supporting the creation of thousands of affordable units. He has also been a protector of Arlington tenants, many of whom work for Arlington businesses.

Through loans and allocations of low-income housing tax credits, Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) has helped create thousands of affordable apartments in Arlington. VHDA loans at competitive rates have helped hundreds of middle- and lower-income Arlingtonians become new homeowners.
