Building quality, affordable — and award-winning — homes for families

Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation’s homes honored as best in the industry with Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Award

The Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition (AHTCC) presented a Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Award to the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation on Tuesday. The nation built 27 new single-family homes with its Southwood Estates Phase 2 in Mayetta, KS.

The awards honor Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) developments that are strengthening communities, improving health and boosting economies across the country.

Kristen Wamego, the nation’s general manager of tribal operations, and Travois President Phil Glynn attended the 25th annual ceremony on Capitol Hill. Travois was the nation’s consultant and architect.

Members of Congress, business and housing leaders celebrate excellence in the affordable housing industry and organizations that have demonstrated especially impactful use of the LIHTC. The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation was the only tribal development recognized.

“This year’s Edson Award recipients are among the most innovative developers, investors, builders and facilitators of low-income housing developments nationwide,” said AHTCC President Michael Gaber. “It is important to recognize their commitment and achievements at a time when the need for affordable housing is reaching crisis levels.”
