2022 National Community Bank Service Awards


ICBA’s National Community Bank Service Awards is a moment to celebrate the community banks that have stepped up for their communities in significant ways.

Over the years we have heard stories about how community banks have filled gaps in their communities—by providing financial literacy education, services to families in need, and programs to uplift those that need support the most.

Award submissions are no longer being accepted.
