Last week, CHN Housing Partners received the 2017 William J. Graves Housing Excellence Award. The award was presented at the 19th annual Ohio Housing Conference hosted by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) and Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH) in Columbus. The luncheon award ceremony was attended by 1,600 people.
Executive director Rob Curry and assistant director Kate Monter Durban accepted the award and paid tribute to William Graves.
“Bill Graves was extraordinary – a friend who gave public service a good name,” said Monter Durban. “Of all the awards out there, this one means a great deal to us.”
Each year, OHFA and OCCH honor a partner in the affordable housing industry with the William J. Graves Ohio Housing Excellence Award. This recognition is reserved for a partner who is dedicated to: providing safe, quality affordable housing for low- to moderate-income families, strengthening Ohio’s communities and providing critical resources to the state of Ohio to prevent and end homelessness. Affordable housing is something Bill cared deeply about, and Ohio is a better place because of his great work. The William J. Graves Ohio Housing Excellence Award is given in his memory.
We are so grateful for the leadership and support contributed by OHFA and OCCH!
