The Form-Based Codes Institute is a nonprofit corporation engaged in research, standards setting, outreach and education. Its mission is to advance the knowledge and use of, and develop standards for, Form-Based Codes as a method to achieve a community vision based on time-tested forms of urbanism. The Institute recognizes that a well-crafted Form-Based Code is the most effective type of development  regulation for shaping pedestrian-scaled, mixed-use and fine-grained urbanism. The award program is supported by Richard H. Driehaus and the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust.
