The 2019 Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships
The 2019 Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships

The Secretary’s Awards for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships recognize excellence in partnerships that have both transformed the relationships between the sectors and led to measurable benefits in housing and community development, including increased economic development, health, safety, education, workforce development, disaster resilience, inclusivity and cultural opportunities, innovative regional approaches, and/or housing access for low- and moderate-income families. By strengthening the connection between the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and philanthropy, this award highlights the power of collective impact that can be achieved through public philanthropic partnerships between government entities and foundations.
