The NAHRO Agency Awards consists of a two-tiered system comprised of Awards of Merit and Awards of Excellence.  The first tier Awards of Merit are submitted to NAHRO and sent to Regional Juries for review.  The Regional Juries then send their nominations to NAHRO for second tier Awards of Excellence. These entries are reviewed by National Juries, who may select up to 24 Awards of Excellence each year.

PAHRA wishes all the best to the Awards of Merit honorees for further advancement in the national competition.  Kudos for your innovative efforts in providing stellar services that enrich resident lives; revitalize communities; improve operations; and create affordable housing opportunities.
