Strategic Use of Data for Transforming Community Investment

Laptop and hands

Wed., March 21, 2012
2 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.

Conference Call


Please join us for an interactive session that will explore creative uses of data and technology to promote public and private investment in transitional communities -- those communities with significant, perhaps erstwhile, strengths and assets but also declining housing values and population.

This audioconference, which is part of the Federal Reserve System's Connecting Communities call-in series, will feature presentations by redevelopment leaders from Baltimore, Cleveland and Philadelphia, where innovative and cost-effective, market-based strategies are being used to inform local decision-making, mobilize support and attract investment. The presenters include:

  • Ira Goldstein - Director, Policy Solutions, The Reinvestment Fund
  • Justin Fleming - Program Officer, Neighborhood Progress, Inc.
  • Michael Braverman - Deputy Commissioner, Housing and Community Development, City of Baltimore

Participants will have an opportunity to pose questions to the presenters both prior to and during the session. Please send your questions to

There is no charge to participate, though pre-registration is required.



Community development professionals, economic development professionals, financial institution representatives, nonprofit organizations, community advocates, local leaders and policymakers.
