Here at the Cleveland Fed, our Community Development team includes economists, policy analysts, writers, and meeting planners working from three cities—Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati—to provide assistance to groups across the Fourth District. Our team’s mission is similar to the Bank’s: support the Federal Reserve’s economic growth objectives by promoting stable, sustainable communities along with fair and impartial access to credit.
We do this in a number of ways. We conduct applied research, analyze data and trends, and provide technical assistance to organizations like yours. We share findings and policy implications through publications and webinars, in face-to-face meetings, and at conferences. We convene meetings, bringing together key players in community and economic development.
Everything we do is aimed at deepening our understanding of issues that affect development of strong communities in our district. Through both quantitative and qualitative research, we can provide credible, evidence-based support and solutions for our constituents.
