Renewing the Promise of the Middle Class Federal Reserve System Community Development Research Conference

Washington, D.C.

Sponsor: Federal Reserve System

Visit: https://www.chicagofed.org/region/community-development/2019-federal-reserve-system-community-development-research-conference

The Federal Reserve System Community Development Research Conference is a biennial event that brings together researchers, policymakers and practitioners to discuss important issues facing individuals and their communities.

The 2019 conference will share research on ways to strengthen and widen paths to the middle class. The decade since the foreclosure crisis and the Great Recession has seen a marked change in the ways to achieve and maintain a middle-class life. For many Americans, the traditional paths—attending college, buying a home and saving for retirement—may now be out of reach or may never have been enough to guarantee financial security.

The conference will explore the latest research on ways to renew the promise of the middle class, including:

  • Emerging trends, recent developments, and historical legacies in education, employment, housing, credit, wealth, health and other areas affecting the middle class
  • Policies and programs to create an inclusive and resilient middle class
  • Specific actions and initiatives by individuals and institutions—including state and local governments, financial institutions, community groups, businesses, military, philanthropies and nonprofits—to create new and enduring paths to the middle class
