ABOUT USCannon Heyman & Weiss, LLP | Law Practice Concentrating in Affordable Housing and Community Development Law.
Cannon Heyman & Weiss, LLP is committed to providing high-quality legal representation to all segments of the affordable housing industry and community development. The firm is known for its responsiveness and effectiveness.
We are dedicated to serving our clients with courtesy and respect and to the best of our ability. We work closely with our clients to develop creative, yet practical solutions to complex real estate financing and other issues that routinely occur in affordable housing and community development transactions. We do not stand on formality, and our "roll up your sleeves" work ethic has been embraced by our attorneys and staff and is well received by our clients.
We pride ourselves not only on the reputation we have developed in our niche practice area and on the volume of repeat clients we are asked to represent across the country, but also on the desire of large institutional law firms to create strategic alliances with our firm for the rendering of legal services regarding the federal law aspects of affordable housing and community development transactions.
The CHW Scholarship Fund
Due to the impact of Covid-19 on the many families with qualified applicants,
we are extending the due date for completed applications to November 1, 2020.
The Cannon Heyman & Weiss, LLP Scholarship Fund was created in 2013 to help students living in affordable rental housing developments realize the dream of furthering their educational training. Providing financial aid to qualified students is an extension of the CHW mission and reflective of our commitment to the affordable housing industry and community development. The Scholarship Fund is entirely underwritten by CHW and we are neither soliciting nor accepting outside financial support.
Scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants for full-time and part-time undergraduate study at approved colleges, junior colleges, technical schools, and other post-secondary institutions leading to a degree, diploma, or certificate. Study at the graduate level is not eligible for scholarship support. This year's awards are expected as follows: $12,500, $7,500, $5,000. Receipt of other grants and scholarships may reduce the CHW Scholarship award if the total of all aid received is greater than the student's cost of attendance. Deadline for receipt of application: postmarked by November 1, 2020.
