The Community Development team aims to advance the economic resilience and mobility of low-income communities by addressing barriers to economic participation.

We identify and address gaps to advance a stronger economy for all Americans in the following ways:

We conduct research on barriers to economic opportunity and promising practices.
We conduct and share data-driven research that tells a nuanced story.

We cultivate and strengthen multisector partnerships to expand economic opportunity.
We facilitate dialogue, shared learning, and partnership building across sectors. We hold events, roundtables, and one-on-one conversations to surface promising strategies. We catalyze change by connecting communities to new resources, new partners, and new ideas.

We engage our communities to better understand the Twelfth District.
By connecting with our stakeholders, we learn about current challenges and emerging issues and elevate them to inform Bank leadership. We dialogue with diverse contacts to gather information for monetary policy.
