The Office of Policy Development and Research is pleased to announce the Final Four Jury and Awards Presentation for the seventh annual Innovation in Affordable Housing Student Design and Planning Competition (IAH). The competition strives to spur research and innovation in affordable housing, raise practitioner and future practitioner capacity, and to foster cross-cutting teamwork within design and community development processes. This year's real-life scenario requires multidisciplinary teams composed of graduate students in architecture, planning and policy, finance, and other areas to address social, economic, environmental, design, financial, and construction issues while designing a new mixed-use development for mixed-income residents on a site in Santa Fe, New Mexico, identified by the Santa Fe County Housing Authority.

Four finalist student teams will present their final projects as part of a live webcast. The jury will deliberate before the winner and runner-up are announced at the conclusion of the event.

The finalist teams represent the following universities:

University of Maryland, College Park
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
