The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works to promote sound and well-functioning financial systems and markets through its provision of industry and payment services, advancement of infrastructure reform in key markets and training and educational support
to international institutions.
The New York Fed engages with individuals, households and businesses in the Second District and maintains an active dialogue in the region. The Bank gathers and shares regional economic intelligence to inform our community and policy makers, and promotes
sound financial and economic decisions through community development and education programs.
To increase awareness of promising workforce practices and policies, the New York Fed collaborates with regional entities to organize policy forums. Each forum focuses on a theme relevant to workforce practitioners and of interest for that region.
The New York Fed is conducting a survey of public community colleges in New York State to find ways to help them foster more effective partnerships with local employers. Findings are expected later this year and will help inform future research and discussion.
