The History

Established in 1990, the Eagle Awards has come to represent one of the highest achievements within the Colorado housing community. These prestigious awards celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments and outstanding leadership in housing and support services. The awards honor the individuals and collaborative projects that soar to new heights in their work to ensure safe, decent, affordable housing for all Coloradans. The awards were historically a part of the NOW! Conference, but in 2018, the organization made the decision to establish a stand-alone gala, celebrating and heightening awareness around these awards. 

The Awards

People, Projects, and Programs
Eagle awards honor the individuals, agencies, projects, and programs that soar to new heights in their work to ensure safe, decent, affordable housing for all Coloradans.

People's Choice Award
The People's Choice Award was created in 1999 as an opportunity for the affordable housing community to evaluate cutting-edge work in the affordable housing field. The housing community will be able to cast their vote for the most deserving of the People's Choice Award from this year's Eagle Award nominees.

Herlinger Award
The Herlinger Award is presented by the Housing Colorado Board of Directors on rare occasions to honor life-time achievements in housing. Recipients are retired housing leaders recognized across Colorado and nationally for their contributions to the field. Named after Dave Herlinger, the former Executive Director of CHFA, the Herlinger Award was established in 2001. The Herlinger has only been awarded on those special occasions when an individual’s impact warrants this special recognition. In addition to Dave Herlinger, Tom Hart, Mark Gallegos, Karen Harkin and Jack Quinn have received Herlinger Awards.
