Jeanne Peterson, Director in CohnReznick’s Sacramento office, received the California Housing Consortium’s Lifetime Achievement Award on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at the CHC’s Annual Policy Forum & Housing Hall of Fame Awards.

CHC inducts only those who have made a profound impact in the housing sector into the California Housing Hall of Fame. In order to be inducted into the Housing Hall of Fame, an individual or organization must demonstrate a seminal or substantial contribution toward advancing the cause of affordable housing in California.

Jeanne has more than 30 years of experience in affordable housing, including policy making and program creation at the state and national level. She has been involved with the housing tax credit program since its inception. She served as Executive Director of the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, which allocates federal and state housing tax credits, for more than five years before joining CohnReznick. Before being appointed to run the California Tax Credit Committee, Jeanne spent many years at the Michigan State Housing Authority, first as staff attorney and then as its Director of Legal Affairs. Jeanne has advised several state housing finance agencies on policy and QAP matters.

Jeanne was honored during CHC’s awards luncheon which recognizes housing leaders across the public, private, non-profit, and community development sectors that have played a key role.

In 2013, Jeanne was inducted into the Affordable Housing Hall of Fame.

About CHC
The CHC Board of Directors chooses leaders in the field for induction who display leadership characteristics such as innovation, effectiveness, inclusiveness, impact, tenure, collaborative spirit, and inspirational records of service in one of five categories: Lifetime Achievement, Public Sector, Private Sector, Non-Profit Sector, and Community Development Lending/Philanthropic Sector.

The 2014 CHC’s Annual Policy Forum & Housing Hall of Fame Awards was held at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel in Santa Monica, California. The event featured a panel discussion around barriers to the development of affordable housing, including community concerns, state and local regulations, financing, and addressing these issues through reasonable legislation and regulatory changes.
