The Community Development Department focuses on a wide variety of topics that impact underserved and lower-income individuals and communities. Explore our work below.
We look at trends and current conditions across our District—from the Community Reinvestment Act to lending and access to credit.
We examine businesses, their impact on local economies, and how they might impact underserved and lower-income individuals and communities.
We study conditions and report on trends in our District’s housing markets.
We monitor conditions and identify trends related to healthy labor markets, focusing primarily on workforce development, education, and job accessibility.
We study and report on issues ranging from those that impact physical health, such as lead paint, to those that affect the economic well-being of households and communities.
We work on issues affecting small firms via research on small business credit and capital, a regional survey of small business owners, and ongoing outreach with small business owners, bankers, and community leaders.
