Affordable Housing Development Competition

The 18th Annual Affordable Housing Development Competition pairs teams of talented graduate students interested in architecture, planning, finance, and policy with affordable-housing organizations to develop innovative and comprehensive development proposals addressing the needs of these organizations.

Students gain real-world experience, make contacts, receive credit, and help critical housing projects get off the ground.

  • 2nd Place: $7,000
