The 2013 edition of the annual Community Development Outlook Survey of low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities across the states that comprise the Eighth Federal Reserve District has been released on the St. Louis Fed’s web site. The survey informs the St. Louis Fed and its branches in Little Rock, Louisville and Memphis about the current conditions of the District’s LMI communities and is shared with policymakers at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. If you don’t already participate in the survey but would like your voice to be heard in future rounds, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
