The HUD Secretary’s Awards are presented annually to honor projects that exemplify excellence in four categories: community planning, historic preservation, affordable housing design, and cooperative public/private efforts. The awards are presented in partnership with the American Planning Association, the American Institute of Architects, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Best in American Living Competition.
