Community Advisory Council

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) is made up of experts and leaders who reflect the diversity of the Fourth District and are focused on economic development issues such as affordable housing, financial and social determinants of health, racial and social inequalities, rural prosperity, small businesses, and workforce development.

The CAC helps to inform the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Community Development staff, senior leadership, and president about current and emerging economic and social issues and trends impacting underserved and lower-income individuals and communities in the Fourth District. This information is used to help guide the priorities of the Community Development Department.
