Working from three cities—Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati—our Cleveland Fed community development team promotes the economic resilience and mobility of low- and moderate-income (LMI) people and communities throughout our district. Economists, policy analysts, and outreach managers help support stable, sustainable communities and fair and impartial access to credit by listening, learning, and capturing insights from community members; conducting applied research and analyzing data and trends; sharing findings and policy implications through publications, webinars, face-to-face meetings, and conferences; and convening key players in community and economic development to discuss our findings with the intent to inform policy, decision making, and investment.
Our work primarily focuses on three priority areas:
- Economic and Workforce Development: Access to good jobs (related work)
- Housing: Access to quality and affordable housing (related work)
- Small Business: Access to credit (related work)
