Hausman receives national housing award

State Rep. Alice Hausman, District 66A, has been named the recipient of the Mary K. Nenno Legislative Advocacy Award by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO).

This national award recognizes outstanding and innovative achievement in legislative advocacy. Hausman led the 2014 effort for historic investments to address the affordable housing needs of families, veterans, seniors and low-income Minnesotans. She continues to promote and support affordable, accessible housing for all Minnesotans.

Hausman will accept the award in July at the NAHRO national conference in Portland, Ore.

The award’s namesake, Mary Kathryn Nenno, worked at NAHRO from 1960 to 1991, serving first as assistant director for housing, then as director of program policy and research, then as associate director for policy development.
