The Valley Breeze: Lincoln Housing Authority wins national awards

Published on August 2, 2017

LINCOLN – The Lincoln Housing Authority announced last week that it recently won several national awards.

LHA received an "Award of Merit" in housing and community development from the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials, a group that recognizes public housing agencies that are using programs to address community needs, according to a release.

NAHRO focuses on several areas for these annual awards, including affordable housing, administration innovation, community revitalization, project design and client and resident services, the release said.

LHA also received an administration innovation award for its implementation of a "no tolerance bullying policy" and a resident and client services award for renovating showers, a move that improved accessibility, the release noted.

"These renovations have provided the aging population they serve with a renewed sense of freedom and independence," LHA said. LHA Executive Director Claudette Kuligowski said,

"The health, safety, and security of our residents are of the utmost importance to LHA. Our agency continually strives to provide innovative services that create and foster positive and healthy lifestyles."
