Connecting Communities: Adapting to COVID-19: Impacts on Lower-Income Communities and Organizations Serving Them in 2022

February 9 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm EST

Connecting Communities

After almost three years, the economic and health effects of COVID-19 continue to linger for low- and moderate-income communities and communities of color. Organizations serving these communities also continue to feel the strain of COVID-19. There are signs of slow stabilization and recovery. There were lower levels of pandemic-related effects in many segments of the economy relative to 2021. But to promote a true recovery that benefits these communities, it is important to monitor the conditions and needs of the organizations who serve those affected most. 

Join us to discuss findings from the National COVID-19 Community Impact Survey administered by the Federal Reserve System. The survey tracks the significant impact that the pandemic has had on underserved communities and those who support them. You’ll also hear perspectives from those working on the frontlines in distressed communities and how organizations can use this data to advocate for themselves and those that they serve.
