U.S. Federal Reserve Bank: Register today for the (July 14, 2020) Connecting Communities: The Impact of COVID-19 on Communities and Small Businesses

July 10, 2020

Join us for a session focused on the Federal Reserve’s response to the pandemic and the important role small businesses play in communities. The session will feature reflections from Patrick T. Harker, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and Claire Kramer Mills, assistant vice president and director of community development analysis at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

The virtual event will also feature key findings from the Federal Reserve System’s COVID-19 Community Impact Survey on low- to moderate-income (LMI) communities and the entities serving them, which was most recently conducted in June. The survey gathers information on the effects of COVID-19 on the nation’s LMI communities and its associated report summarizes responses from representatives from nonprofits, financial institutions, government agencies and other community organizations.
