The NAHB Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards program is grouped into five primary categories: Developer, Affordable, Firm, Individual and Marketing. Applicants may submit entries for any category under which they meet the criteria. Applicants should review the eligibility and submission requirements before applying. All applications must be completed and submitted online.

To be eligible for the Developer, Affordable or Marketing categories, the nomination must pertain to a project that first became available for sale or for rent after Jan. 1, 2014. The same project may be entered for awards in multiple categories.

Last years’ winners are not eligible for the same award previously won, but may enter other categories. Finalists from previous years are eligible in any category. More than one person from the same organization cannot enter the same project in the same category. In the event this happens, only the first entry received will be accepted.

  • $325 – NAHB Members (per entry)
