Welcome to, your gateway to community development resources from all 12 Federal Reserve Banks and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.

Why is the Fed engaged in community development? Because stable communities promote stable regions and a more robust economy overall. Through applied research, public programs, outreach and technical assistance, the Fed’s community development departments help promote economic growth and financial stability in communities across the country, especially those in low- and moderate-income areas. Regional Reserve Banks, while connected in this shared mission, are uniquely poised to develop programs that respond to the local needs of their districts.

Regardless of your geographic location, experience or sector, provides an array of practical resources to help you in your role as a community development professional, whether your work involves supporting people, places, the policy and practice of community development or small-business development.
