New Fed Podcast Will Examine Access to Affordable Consumer Credit

The Community Development departments of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts have released the first episode of a new podcast series, Access. The series will address important social issues like economic mobility, affordable housing, small business development, and community reinvestment. Each episode will showcase successful program models that provide access to opportunity for low- and moderate-income individuals and families. Join us as we ask community members and organizations across the country about the challenges they face and what solutions they’ve found for key community development issues.

The first episode, which highlights an innovative small-dollar loan program, is now available on the Access website, iTunes, and Stitcher. Stay tuned for more episodes coming in 2017.
