Have You Checked Out FedCommunities.org Lately?

September 18, 2015

Do you value information across numerous community development topics and presented in all types of media? Are you a collector of resources who struggles to locate what you’ve saved? With more than 475 resources from community development offices across the Federal Reserve System, chances are FedCommunities.org has something of particular interest to you. What’s more, this vast collection of webinars, research and data, publications, event registrations and more is easy to navigate and search, so you can bookmark one site for access and clear your URL clutter.

Launched last summer, the FedCommunities.org web portal provides a single gateway to hundreds of Fed materials from all 12 Reserve Banks and the Board of Governors. And it’s growing every week; if you haven’t checked it out lately, take a peek to see what you’re missing. Recent additions include: The Why of Weak Wages, an article from the Cleveland Fed; The Link between Health and Community Development, a video from the San Francisco Fed; and the Community Development Data Inventory, a resource guide developed by the Philadelphia Fed.


To get the freshest content available, sign up on the site to receive notifications when new resources are posted; you need only submit your email and let us know what types of resources most interest you.

The portal is organized into four general categories—those that support people, place, the policy and practice of community development and small business. To share feedback or suggestions, use the site’s “Contact Us” button or email jeanne.c.marra@stls.frb.org.

Bridges is a regular review of regional community and economic development issues. Views expressed are not necessarily those of the St. Louis Fed or Federal Reserve System.
