Assemblyman Herman Farrell

The Coalition will inaugurate this award at our conference on October 13, 2016 by presenting it to Assemblyman Farrell.

The Herman D. Farrell Jr. Policy Leader Award honors a dedicated and highly-respected public servant who serves as the New York State Assembly representative for District 71.

Since 1974, Assemblyman Farrell has been a tireless advocate for affordable housing, education and the environment, and was the original author of the Neighborhood Preservation Program legislation.

In future years, this award will be presented to a state or local government official who has worked to create and/or preserve affordable housing and helped spur neighborhood revitalization.

The selected recipient will demonstrate, through their activities, a commitment to improving the lives of low-and-moderate income individuals and families.
