(PDF PDF icon)

A publication of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System

Across the nation, communities have identified promising ways to target increasingly scarce resources to jumpstart and sustain neighborhood investment, and thereby help to promote economic recovery. The most innovative communities have deployed new sources of data, new ways of using data, new technologies, and new partnerships to maximize the impact of their work. In this way, they have built a data infrastructure that can inform public and private investment to stabilize neighborhoods hard hit by population loss, foreclosure, unemployment, and loss of revenue.
