Matz named to NeighborWorks post
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (11/19/12)--National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz has been appointed vice chair to the board of directors of NeighborWorks America, an affordable housing and community development organization.

Matz previously served on the NeighborWorks board in 2004, and she said she is "honored to return" and help the organization continue its outstanding work to ensure individuals and families have access to safe, affordable homes.

Matz will take on the NCUA's slot on the NeighborWorks Board. That spot was previously filled by former NCUA board member Gigi Hyland, who left the NCUA this fall.

NeighborWorks also named Federal Reserve Board Governor Sarah Bloom Raskin as board chair.

NeighborWorks America works to provide access to homeownership and to safe and affordable rental housing. In the past five years, NeighborWorks' affiliated organizations have generated more than $19.5 billion in reinvestment in their communities, according to a release, which also stated that NeighborWorks America is the nation's leading trainer of community development and affordable housing professionals.

Determined by statute, NeighborWorks America's board consists of the heads of the financial regulatory agencies and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, who are presidential appointees subject to Senate confirmation, or their statutorily designated representatives.
