St. Louis Fed Survey Results: Economic Conditions in LMI Communities

Registration is now closed for this event.

As the economy continues to change, how are low- and moderate-income (LMI) individuals and communities performing economically? What are some of the major challenges and needs of these populations, and are they the same in both rural and metropolitan areas? How are community/economic developers, financial institutions and nonprofits prioritizing their work to help improve the LMI areas they serve?

During this Exploring Innovation webinar from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, we will discuss the data from the Bank's 2014 Community Development Outlook Survey of LMI economic conditions in the seven states that make up the Fed's Eighth District. Since 2011, a variety of stakeholders have been surveyed annually to gather input on the economic conditions of LMI households and communities to better understand their needs. Data from the survey is used to inform strategic planning, community and economic development, and public policy dialogue around issues and challenges for LMI areas.

To add additional insight, some members of the St. Louis Fed's Community Development Advisory Council will join the webinar. They will discuss what they have seen related to improving conditions for LMI individuals and communities in their particular region. Presenters include:
