The 2009 NeighborWorks Government Service Award recipients have just been announced. This is an honor that recognizes elected or appointed officials at the local, state, and federal levels that have made significant contributions to improving the lives of the people in their communities through support for affordable housing and community development.
“The commitment demonstrated by these leaders at the federal, state and local government levels is ever more important given today’s challenges in the housing market and the economic crisis,” said Ken Wade, CEO of NeighborWorks America. “The 2009 honorees recognize the far-reaching impact of community development efforts. From supporting foreclosure intervention efforts and educating families about predatory foreclosure rescue scams, to ensuring residents have access to quality affordable housing, and revitalizing areas affected by blight, the 2009 honorees have made the communities they represent better places to live. We are proud to honor them for their invaluable service.”
