Register Now for Two Call-in Sessions in March

The Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) agreement is the focus of an upcoming audioconference led by Federal Reserve and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency staff. Thirteen of the mortgage servicers subject to the IFR reached an agreement with federal regulators to pay more than $9.3 billion to help borrowers. Join community development practitioners from across the country at 3:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 6, for a call-in session on this topic.

And on Wednesday, March 20, at 2 p.m. ET, staff from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will present key findings from the 2011 FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households released last September. The FDIC conducts this survey every two years to collect data on the number of U.S. households that are unbanked and underbanked, the reasons for their being so, and their demographic characteristics.

Register for these interactive sessions at the Connecting Communities™ website. Participation is free, but preregistration is required.

These events are part of the Federal Reserve's Connecting Communities series, which is a national initiative intended to provide community development practitioners, financial institution representatives, policymakers, and others with timely information on emerging and important community and economic development topics.
