2019 Vision Awards Information
Since its founding in 1923, the Committee of 100 on the Federal City has championed responsible planning and land use to protect our city’s cultural richness, natural beauty, livability and historic distinction as the Nation’s Capital.
In support of our mission, we advocate for balanced zoning and planning, parks and environment, multi-modal transportation, affordable housing, and historic preservation.
The Committee of 100’s annual Vision Awards recognize a wide range of projects, programs, plans, and the work of organizations and individuals that fulfill our vision of a beautiful and livable city for all people. Past awardees are distinguished by their accomplishments for neighborhoods, historic preservation, public space, environmental preservation, housing and good planning within the District of Columbia. We continue this tradition with the 2019 Vision Awards on May 29, 2019 at Trinity Washington University.

This year we sought nominations of outstanding citywide or smaller area projects, programs and plans, as well as the ongoing work of organizations and individuals. In recognition that being able to afford to live in the city is a requirement for a livable city, we have placed a non-eclusive emphasis on outstanding projects in affordable housing, particularly low-income housing for those earning at or below $56,000/year or 50% of the Area Median Family Income of approximately $117,000 for a family of four. We are pleased that the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development (CNHED) is partnering with us to ensure that the 2019 Vision Awards celebrate the many fine projects and people who are addressing the challenges of housing affordability in our city.
