NHT Communities Awards

Scott awardNHT Communities has accomplished much since 1999 and many of our projects have been recognized by the housing industry as exemplary. We are proud that several of our projects have received “best project” awards from the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND), the Affordable Housing Finance Magazine, the Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition, and the National Development Council Academy.  Whether working nationally or on a neighborhood level, NHT Communities' leadership in the field of affordable housing preservation has been recognized by groups as varied as the MacArthur Foundation to neighborhood-based organizations and tenant advocacy groups.
