The Hanley Foundation and Hanley Wood have named Make It Right  of New Orleans the recipient of the first Hanley Award for Community Service in Sustainability. The annual award, with its $25,000 grant, was created to recognize community-based and non-profit organizations working to advance sustainability and environmental awareness in the host cities of the annual Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, which takes place this year in New Orleans.  Make It Right was selected for its work building sustainable, affordable homes for people in need around the country, including New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward, the neighborhood hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.
