A Community Development Podcast from
the Federal Reserve

Welcome!

Access is a podcast from the Federal Reserve System’s community development function. Community development teams across the 12 Federal Reserve districts conduct outreach and research on issues faced by low- and moderate-income households to help ensure that anyone from any background has access to opportunity and the mainstream economy. We started this podcast to spotlight community voices and to showcase program models that are helping create economic security and mobility for underserved populations.

Join us as we ask community members and organizations across the U.S. about challenges they face and solutions they’ve found for important social issues.

The information and views presented in this podcast do not necessarily reflect official positions of the Federal Reserve System and do not constitute an endorsement of any organization or program.
