The annual Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Awards (Edson Awards) recognize outstanding affordable housing developments and organizations that have demonstrated especially impactful use of the LIHTC. Award recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony on September 20 in Washington, DC, with members of Congress representing winning properties invited to present the awards.  

Property nominations may be submitted by development owners, syndicators, investors, government agencies and other stakeholders. This year, the Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition (AHTCC) introduced two new categories to the Edson Awards: The Housing for Native American or Tribal Populations category, to honor properties that provide housing primarily to Native American populations and/or provide housing on tribal land, and the Green and Healthy Housing category, to honor properties with features that notably support environmental sustainability and/or the physical or mental health of residents.  

Entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 22. Please send any questions to
