Steven D. Gold Award

PRINT PAGE

John M. Yinger was selected as the 2017 Steven D. Gold Award recipient, which recognizes someone who has made a significant contribution to public financial management in the field of intergovernmental relations and state and local finance. Yinger’s research focuses on racial and ethnic discrimination in housing and mortgage markets, as well as state and local public finance, particularly education.

His new book, Housing and Commuting: The Theory of Urban Residential Structure, is forthcoming. His 1995 book, Closed Doors, Opportunities Lost: The Continuing Costs of Housing Discrimination, won the 1995 Meyers Center Award for the Study of Human Rights in North America. Yinger also edited 2004’s Helping Children Left Behind: State Aid and the Pursuit of Educational Equity and co-authored 2002’s The Color of Credit: Mortgage Discrimination, Research Methodology, and Fair Lending Enforcement.

Yinger’s widely-published research includes “Geography of Housing Discrimination” in the Journal of Housing Research, “The Impact of State Aid Reform on Property Values” in Education and Finance Policy, “What Have We Learned from Paired Testing in Housing Markets?” in Cityscape: A Journal of Policy Development and Research and “How Much More Does a Disadvantaged Student Cost?” in Economics of Education Review.

Yinger has served as in The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University since 1985, currently as Trustee Professor of Public Administration and Economics. He is also the director of the Education Finance and Accountability Program and the associate director of the Center for Policy Research. His prior teaching experience includes Harvard University, the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin and Princeton University. Yinger holds Ph.D. from Princeton University and a BA with honors from Swarthmore College.

This award is given annually in conjunction with the National Conference of State Legislatures and the National Tax Association. Established in 1997, the award is in memory of Steve Gold, an active member of all three organizations that sponsor it. Gold’s career and life was tragically shortened by illness in 1996. The sponsoring organizations rotate in chairing the selection committee. APPAM convened the selection committee for the 2017 award.

Yinger will accept the Steven D. Gold Award during the Presidential Address and Award ceremony on Friday, November 3, during the 2017 APPAM Fall Research Conference in Chicago.

About the Steven D. Gold Award

APPAM approved this award in 1997 when the Policy Council adopted a policy for the creation of awards in recognition or memory of a specific person. That policy states that the association will not use operating funds to support honoraria for such awards. Accordingly, this award does not offer an honorarium. This is the only award offered through APPAM that also is offered by other associations in the public policy and management field.

The Steve Gold Award recognizes a person who has made a significant contribution to public financial management in the field of intergovernmental relations and state and local finance. The award is given annually by APPAM, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and the National Tax Association, in memory of Steve Gold, an active member of all three organizations whose career and life tragically were shortened by illness.

Winners of the Steve Gold Award receive a plaque and recognition at the annual conference of the specific organization that chairs the selection committee. The sponsoring organizations rotate in chairing the selection committee. The sponsoring organizations rotate in chairing the selection committee. APPAM will convened the selection committee for the 2017 award. The selection committee may decide not to make an award in any particular year.
