International and Philanthropic Innovation

WINNERS OF 2017 SECRETARY’S AWARDS | Awards were given to place-based funders for completed or ongoing projects that are executed in partnership with a local, regional, or federal government agency. The winners are:
 
 
RESEARCH ON AGING WITH JAPAN | The governments of Japan and the United States understand the importance of housing for older adults. For this reason, Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT); HUD; and Ginnie Mae, a government-owned corporation within HUD, are leading a joint research partnership on aging in place.  
 
CALL FOR CITYSCAPE SUBMISSIONS | The goal of Foreign Exchange, the international section of HUD’s Cityscape journal, is to deliver high-quality research on housing and community development issues abroad that could deliver value to communities here in the United States. By linking international innovations and promising practices to similar conditions and contexts here in the States, research can further the conversation on applying creative solutions to communities’ most pressing challenges.
 
HUD’s Office for International and Philanthropic Innovation invites submissions to the journal. Submission of a short (2–3 paragraph) treatment of your proposed article is requested. For those whose treatments are accepted, final article submissions are due in July for the upcoming issue. Please send submissions to ipiinfo@huduser.gov.
