2011 Cleveland Fed Policy Summit: Housing, Human Capital, and Inequality

House in hands

Thu., June 9, 2011 - Fri., June 10, 2011
10:30 a.m.

InterContinental Hotels Cleveland, Cleveland, Ohio



No community has gone unscathed by the housing crisis and recent recession. However, low– and moderate–income communities have been disproportionately impacted by the housing market and economic crisis, further deepening the divide between the haves and the have–nots. Income inequality in this country is at an all–time high, and is among the highest in the developed world. In this environment, it is critical to revisit education and asset building policies, through the lenses of research and practice, that will support stability and upward mobility in poor communities.

The 2011 Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland's Policy Summit is an annual convening of elected officials, researchers, bankers, practitioners, and funders that tackles the hottest economic and community development issues facing the Midwest. Some of this year's topics include:

- The Growth of Inequalities in the U.S.
- Subsidies for Low-Income Housing
- The Impact of Foreclosures on Households
- Labor Mobility and Housing
- Schools, Neighborhoods, and Inequality
- Low-Income Homeownership



Join elected officials, researchers, practitioners, bankers, funders, and policymakers to discuss the latest research on and best practices in housing mobility, education policies, and stable, sustainable communities.
