The View from Main Street: What Communities Need to Recover from the Pandemic
Join us February 16 for a Fed Communities conversation that highlights ways the Fed's community development work can inform and bolster communities' recovery. Fed Communities is the first stop for Federal Reserve community development information which seeks to amplify the Fed's work in low-and-moderate income communities and other underserved areas.
Two years after the first reported cases of SARS COVID-19, economic recovery is finally underway. The pandemic to date has claimed the lives of more than 5 million people worldwide and crippled global markets. For US communities that struggled pre-pandemic, the road ahead is even more challenging. What's the best way for these communities to build economic mobility and resilience for their residents and businesses?
