Presenting the award to Senator Bond, NeighborWorks America CEO Eileen Fitzgerald noted that he is known for a long string of accomplishments on behalf of families and accessible housing, beginning with his service as Missouri’s youngest governor and continuing through four terms as one of Missouri’s U.S. Senators.

“Senator Bond has been a leader for families and housing,” said Fitzgerald. “He continues that leadership as a co-chair of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Housing Commission. We are excited and sincerely honored to recognize Senator Bond for all the work that he’s done and continues to do for housing in the United States.”
