Call for Nominations: 2020 HUD Secretary's Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in partnership with the Council on Foundations, is pleased to announce a call for nominations for the 2020 HUD Secretary's Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships. This award recognizes excellence in partnerships that have both transformed the relationship between the sectors and led to measurable benefits in terms of increased employment, health, safety, education, disaster resilience, inclusivity and cultural opportunities, and/or housing access for low- and moderate-income families.

The award will be given to ten foundations for completed or ongoing initiatives that are executed in partnership with any local, regional, or federal government. The goal is to recognize the partnership process and its impact as a community strategy across all American geographies — urban, suburban, and rural. Nominees will be assessed on: the strength of the cross-sector partnerships; locally driven, geographically focused outcomes; maintaining a lasting impact in the community; evidence and data-driven innovation; and transferability.

To be eligible, nominated initiatives should have been either completed between January 2019 and January 2020, or, if ongoing, in effect since at least January 2019. All entries must be completed using the fillable PDF form and submitted by an eligible foundation via email to [email protected]. The PDF form is available at and The deadline for submission is 11:59 p.m. PT, Monday, February 17, 2020.

Judging will take place in March 2020 by a panel of jurors, and awards will be presented at the Department of Housing and Urban Development in Washington, DC in Spring 2020. For complete details, please see the brochure here.
