The Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards

Established in 1995, the Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards (CNDA) recognize the essential role that both non-profit and for-profit developers play in building communities in Chicago-area neighborhoods. The Awards recognize outstanding achievement in neighborhood real estate development and community building, especially the achievements of community development corporations (CDCs), other community-based organizations and for-profit developers working to build healthier neighborhoods in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Applications will be accepted from September 1 - October 15 2020 for the Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards and Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Award for Architectural Excellence in Community Design to be presented at the Spring 2021 CNDA event.
