Why Our Region
The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland serves the Fourth Federal Reserve District, which comprises Ohio, western Pennsylvania, eastern Kentucky, and the northern panhandle of West Virginia. The region offers diverse cultures, beautiful landscapes, affordable living, family friendly communities, and abundant recreational amenities.
In addition to the main office in Cleveland, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland operates branch offices in Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Branch offices allow us to reach our local communities more directly to help with the financial and cash-related needs of banking institutions and also to gain insight into the development and needs of local business and economies.
Cleveland has great people and great culture. Many make Cleveland their home because they were raised here. Others have come for work, the relatively low cost of living, or the quality of life. While Cleveland rose to prominence thanks to steel and manufacturing industries, the city remains vibrant today with world-class hospital systems, top-notch universities, and growing businesses.
And there’s plenty to do. Cleveland is home to big-time sports with professional football, baseball, and basketball teams and a jumping music scene, from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to Severance Hall—home of the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra—to the many indie concert venues around town. Lake Erie and thousands of acres of parkland comprise a varied playground for those called to the outdoors. If food is more your scene, you’ll find a mix of traditional and trendy restaurants serving up many ethnic cuisines and garnering national accolades. Learn more by visiting local community links:
