Honoring Arlington Community Foundation’s Shared Prosperity Initiative
Four problems drive the involuntary displacement of our lowest-income residents: lack of affordable housing, expensive and unavailable child care, limited pathways to living wage jobs, and lack of health insurance and quality care.
This year, the Arlington Community Foundation launched a new partnership to find solutions to these problems. The Shared Prosperity Initiative brings together leaders from Arlington’s government, business, and nonprofit sectors to collaborate on creating shared prosperity in our community.
On November 17, the Alliance for Housing Solutions will honor Arlington Community Foundation’s Shared Prosperity Initiative with the 2019 Ellen M. Bozman Affordable Housing Award.
This annual award is given to individuals or organizations who have significantly advanced efforts to increase the supply of and/or to improve the quality of affordable housing in Arlington through leadership, innovation, and effectiveness over time. The award honors the late Ellen M. Bozman, a long-time Arlington County Board member and leader on affordable housing issues. She was a co-founder of the Alliance for Housing Solutions and a member of its Board of Directors.
