Engaging Workforce Development: A Framework for Meeting CRA Obligations

Workforce development contributes to a strong economy by equipping workers to succeed in the labor market and supplying employers with quality talent. This framework, from the Dallas and Kansas City Feds, is designed to give banks—and organizations interested in partnering with them—tools and information to engage in workforce development activities in ways that may help them fulfill their obligations under the Community Reinvestment Act.

Federal Reserve Community Development Perspectives

Ever wonder about the Federal Reserve’s involvement in the field of community development? Wonder no more. Released in June 2014, Federal Reserve Community Development Perspectives: A summary of activities, insights, and future opportunities answers the "what," "why" and "how" of the Fed's role in community development. The report highlights the Fed’s recent efforts to address barriers to economic growth, and promote fair and informed access to financial markets. Featuring brief summaries of its community development work organized into four focus areas--people, place, the policy and practice of community development, and small business--the report includes background information that helps to provide context for this work, a sampling of key research, outreach programs and other initiatives, as well as some ideas on future challenges, needs and opportunities.
