The 2014 awards program will be announced in February 2014. All Architectural firms in the Washington, DC area who design affordable housing projects in the Maryland/Virginia/DC region are encouraged to apply.
for their innovative designs for Victory Oaks and Victory Square – two affordable housing developments serving low income seniors.
for their uplifting restoration of Samuel J. Simmons NCBA Estates in Washington, DC, a development for elderly low income residents.

Format: Architects are asked to submit projects in digital format and/or in the same format as the AIA Awards program: 36inches x 36 inches foam core panels suitable to attachment and stacking. Awards program boards may be used.
Project Eligibility: Architects are encouraged to submit any project which uses housing subsidy funds other than the mortgage interest deduction and which provides assisted housing to more than 30% of its residents.
