Policy Summit

Policies that promote community development should never be one-size-fits-all. For the past 10 years, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland has convened an annual Policy Summit aimed at bringing important policy discussions outside the Beltway. The goal of this two-day forum is to share expert knowledge, the latest research, and promising ideas among professionals engaged in community and economic development in the Great Lakes region.

This year, we are expanding our reach to include the nation’s Northeast region, whose communities face many of the same challenges. For the first time, the Cleveland Fed is partnering with the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia in sponsoring the Policy Summit on Housing, Human Capital, and Inequality. The focus? Regulations and how they work as tools for policy implementation.
Learn from national experts on topics including consumer finances, household balance sheets, the future of housing finance, and student loans. Confer with colleagues on common issues facing your communities. And hear keynote addresses that will challenge and inspire you. Cleveland Fed President & CEO Sandra Pianalto and Princeton University’s Eldar Shafir will provide keynote addresses. 

This year the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland will offer a special rate for educators. Research and practitioner sessions will focus on the changing role of regulations in economic and community development.



Banking professionals, housing professionals, workforce development professionals, educators, federal agencies, researchers and policymakers
