Center for Community Development Investments

The Center for Community Development Investments is the Community Development department’s research function that conducts qualitative surveys and analyzes large-scale data sets to identify trends and emerging issues affecting lower-income communities. The Center produces informed publications and hosts nationally- and regionally-focused convenings on topics of interest to banks, policy makers, community development practitioners and academics. It is also home to the department’s Visiting Scholars Program.

Field Work

The Community Development team advances solutions that address the needs of the Twelfth District’s lower-income communities. By regularly convening stakeholders and community partners, we bring the best thinking and resources together to address these challenges and opportunities. We gather community insights, share knowledge, and connect stakeholders to move forward leading ideas that address the pressing needs of low-income communities.
