Building Innovation for Homeownership, a publication from HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research, recognizes 63 award-winning housing projects from across the United States that meet the Building Innovation for Homeownership (BIH) program criteria. BIH is an initiative by the National Partners in Homeownership that identifies housing projects across America that employ innovative homebuilding technology, design, and development to make affordable housing and homeownership a reality. These award winners were chosen based on the ability of designers, developers, and contractors to adopt new technology when developing affordable housing projects. Costs of the homes in winning projects were below the median costs of new family housing.
