Our Bank’s Community Development department is releasing two new publications that examine topical issues in the Fifth District.
Community Pulse shares key findings from a survey conducted this spring of community development experts, who identify current and emerging issues in our District. Respondents represent a broad cross-section of perspectives from across the District.
5th District Spotlight communicates key facts about community development topics using infographics. This first issue examines the unbanked population nationally and in our District.
Both of these publications, which will come out twice a year, show how we’re using our research to help educate the public and our engagement with our communities.
“The field of community development is increasingly relying on data to inform its work and make targeted investments,” said Urvi Neelakantan, Community Development research economist and manager. “We’re contributing to this effort through our new infographic publication, 5th District Spotlight, and our Community Pulse survey, which provides us with insights from experts who do this work every day.”
