On Tuesday, November 14, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host an in-person event focused on how joint efforts by impact investors and the community development finance sector can foster opportunity-rich neighborhoods and lead to a stronger economy.
Discussions will include the Federal Reserve’s role in past financial innovations; opportunities for community development financial institutions and impact investors to work as partners; and laying the groundwork for impact financing to meet community needs.
This event will be of interest to leaders in banking, Community Development Financial Institutions, impact investing, philanthropies, and nonprofits. The public event will be followed by an afternoon of invitation-only roundtable discussions on topics including climate, health, and community development finance.
