Reception to follow

Investing in Rural Prosperity

The New York Fed is hosting a public event in collaboration with the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The event will highlight a new framework for advancing shared economic prosperity in rural communities across the United States, initially proposed in “Investing in Rural Prosperity,” a new book published by the St. Louis Fed in collaboration with the Board of Governors. A complimentary copy of the book will be given to the first 100 people in attendance. This is a hybrid event with in-person and virtual attendance options.

In addition to exploring this new framework, the event will focus on:

  • Ways to leverage natural assets to promote rural prosperity
  • Strategies for investing in equitable resilience
  • The need for more broadband investment
  • Local collaborations between the health sector and community development
  • Innovative case studies from France that use culture, nature, and innovation to revitalize smaller communities

This hybrid event is open to the public and media. All remarks are on the record and the event will be livestreamed with a recording to be made available afterwards. For media inquiries, please contact Ellen Simon at ellen.simon@ny.frb.org.
