Community Events

2017 Summit on Housing, Human Capital and Inequality
The Federal Reserve Banks of Cleveland, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia invite paper submissions for the 2017 Policy Summit on Housing, Human Capital, and Inequality, which will be held June 22-23 in Cleveland, Ohio. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in economic policy and development in low- and moderate-income communities.

This year's theme is "Transforming Regional Economies: Growth and Equity through Policy and Practice," and we encourage the submission of research papers in the following areas: economic development, entrepreneurship, equitable development and transit, recent trends in Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) lending (e.g., access to capital and credit for small businesses), workforce development, education reform, and related topics. Papers addressing other topics related to housing, human capital, and inequality will also be considered.
The Policy Summit is a biennial forum that attracts an audience of several hundred academics, bankers, elected officials, funders, policymakers, and practitioners from across the eastern United States and beyond. If your paper is selected, you will be asked to present at the summit held at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. Travel and accommodation expenses per Federal Reserve guidelines will be covered for presenters.
The deadline for submission is 5:00 pm ESTTuesday, February 28, 2017.

Please submit an extended abstract or a draft of your research paper along with a brief bio by the date above to 
http://frb.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_8jF2X7HxVQtkD65. We will notify submitting authors of accepted papers by March 31, 2017. Once accepted for inclusion, full conference papers are due June 2, 2017.
