Get to know six industry rising stars who are helping make a difference for low- and moderate-income residents across the nation.

All 40 and younger, this year’s group of Young Leaders includes four developers, an attorney, and an urban development expert. Although they all have different job descriptions and skill sets, these young men and women are playing vital roles in the creation and preservation of much-needed housing in their own ways.

Since 2008, AHF has been honoring young people who are making a big difference in the industry with its Young Leader award. The Young Leader award was created as a way to celebrate and support the development of a new generation of leaders. The 2019 Young Leaders will be honored at AHF Live: The Affordable Housing Developers’ Summit, Nov. 18-20, in Chicago.
