Community Investment Council

Meet John Maneval: A Voice for Maryland

Our Community Investment Council is composed of community leaders from across our District who possess unique perspectives and a deep understanding of the local economy. The CIC helps us to identify emerging issues and opportunities across the Fifth District to help us deliver economic investment tools and policies.

Meet John Maneval, a member of our Community Investment Council and deputy director of Multifamily Housing and Business Lending at the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).

Video is temporarily unavailable.

DHCD takes a triple bottom line approach to thinking about their work. At the highest level, they support individuals and communities to help them achieve their greatest potential. Secondarily, they look at investments to have an economic impact throughout Maryland. Finally, they run a profitable enterprise where they can re-invest earnings back into the community.

Maneval brings a state perspective to the Community Investment Council to help the Richmond Fed and the council at-large better understand the state’s role in federal policymaking and what happens on the ground within the local community.

Meet the rest of our Community Investment Council.
