Community Development

Like the other 11 regional banks in the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis has a Community Development department that encourages investment in low- and moderate-income communities by building partnerships and understanding among financial institutions, community-based organizations, government entities, and the public.

The mission of Community Development at the Minneapolis Fed is to support the Federal Reserve System's economic growth objectives by promoting community development through fair, impartial, and efficient access to credit and related financial services. In pursuit of its mission, the Minneapolis Community Development team offers information on public/private partnerships, resources, and innovative models that foster access to credit and investment in the low- and moderate-income communities of the Ninth Federal Reserve District.
