The intent of this award is to recognize and encourage excellence in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of socially responsible housing by honoring an organization, a group or an individual who has been a major force behind one or more built developments.
The John M. Clancy Award for Socially Responsible Housing, established in 2004 by the principals of Boston architecture firm Goody Clancy, recognizes and honors the decades of creative commitment John Clancy FAIA brought to the planning, design and construction of multifamily housing for diverse populations at all income levels. With a high level of care and respect for those intended to occupy his housing projects, Clancy significantly influenced the design of successful housing for low- and moderate-income communities.

Any public- or private-sector project built in the United States, completed and occupied since January 2002, is eligible. The housing must be multifamily in nature and provide for low- or moderate-income residents as a major portion of the project.
The jurors will base their decisions on criteria that includes design excellence, livability, sustainability, accessibility/universal design, community design and diversity. Special attention will be given to the success of the project in providing housing for those who can least afford it.
Projects that have been honored in past years and work by jurors or by their firms are ineligible.
