Marketwise Community highlights community development best practice models and emerging issues in the Fifth District.
Recognizing community and economic development challenges across the low- and moderate-income spectrum in rural communities, three Reserve Banks – Atlanta, Cleveland and Richmond – established the Tri-Bank Initiative, a partnership to work together on programs to benefit Central Appalachia. This issue of MarketWise Community explores the Tri-Bank Initiative’s work through the lens of a model of collective impact where partnering organizations coalesce around a shared agenda designed to address these regional community and economic development challenges.
