The EITC is the nation’s largest income-support program. Senior staff of the FDIC’s Office of Policy & Research will present data from the most recent National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households. In addition, Dave Beck, the Richmond Fed’s Senior Vice President and Regional Executive will present an in-depth look at new financial products being adopted by low-income consumers.

Leading practitioners from around Maryland, along with senior state officials, will discuss current efforts and highlight ways to improve the financial strength of low-wealth families and communities moving forward. Participants can expect a robust discussion about cross-sector strategies that can contribute significantly to a more inclusive, equitable Maryland economy.
