April 2, 2009
Chicago, IL - U.S. Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund Director Donna J. Gambrell today was honored with the 2009 Community Reinvestment Award by the Chicago-based Woodstock Institute.
"I am honored to be named as one of the recipients of the Community Reinvestment Award,” said Director Gambrell. “While this award is in my name, I accept it in recognition of the exceptional men and women with whom I have had the privilege of working with over my career in community development, especially those here in the great state of Illinois."
The Community Reinvestment Award honors policymakers, community organizations, and financial institutions that have made outstanding contributions to community reinvestment in Illinois.
Past recipients of the Community Reinvestment Award include Chairman Sheila Bair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Citizen Action of Illinois, Neighborhood Housing Services, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and Shorebank.
The Woodstock Institute has hosted the Community Reinvestment Reception, the largest gathering of community reinvestment professionals in the Midwest, since 1990. In previous years, the award reception has attracted over 200 representatives of Chicago community-based organizations, advocacy groups, financial institutions, and banking regulators.
