Take In-Depth Look at the Fed's Community Development Work

Interested in learning more about the latest trends in community development? Curious about the work the Federal Reserve does in this space, and why?

Join community development practitioners from across the country at 3:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 10 for a call-in session on the topic.

This session will also provide an introduction to the Fed's new website, FedCommunities.org, which hosts community development resources from each of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks and the Board of Governors. Community development practitioners will find the site useful when searching for research on a particular topic area in the field.

Featured speakers will include Joseph Firschein of the Fed Board of Governors, Alfreda Norman of the Dallas Fed, and Mark Pinsky from the Opportunity Finance Network. These experts will share their perspectives on the state of the community development industry and offer insights on promising practices, research, and policy issues for new and current practitioners.

Register for this interactive session at the Connecting Communities™ website. Participation is free, but preregistration is required.

This event is part of the Federal Reserve's Connecting Communities series, a national initiative intended to provide community development practitioners, financial institution representatives, policymakers, and others with timely information on emerging and important community and economic development topics.
