THA OUTSIDE THE BOX AWARD
The Texas Housing Association “Outside the Box” Award was conceived and first awarded in 2011. Two “Outside the Box” awards are given to PHAs that have implemented particularly innovative programs for their agency or their residents—one for PHAs with 500 or fewer units; one for PHAs with more than 500 units.
Submissions are requested in the spring of each year. The Member Services Committee reviews the submissions and determines the winners. Winners are recognized at the Annual Conference in August.
