Stabilization and recuperation are happening slowly; however\, it is important to monitor the conditions and needs of the organizations serving the most severely impacted communities to foster an inclusive recovery. These organizations are the infrastructure that aids in promoting economic resilience and mobility for all. Without them\, we risk an uneven recovery from the pandemic. \nThe national COVID-19 Community Impact Survey\, administered by the Federal Reserve System\, was designed to track the significant impact the pandemic has had on low- to moderate-income (LMI) communities and the entities serving them. The survey was created to amplify the voices of people working on the frontlines to serve distressed communities. \nIn August 2021\, the latest iteration of the survey was implemented in collaboration with eight national partners. During this session\, we will discuss findings affecting organizations serving LMI communities\, and how this research informs decision-making for our partners and other community development practitioners. \nSpeakers: \n\nNishesh Chalise\, director of community-based policy and analysis\, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis \nEllicia Lanier\, founder and executive director\, Urban Sprouts Child Development Center \nSabeen Perwaiz\, president and CEO\, Florida Nonprofit Alliance \nDavid L.

Economic developers should be part of eliminating economic barriers for this group of citizens that reenter society. This webinar will explore ways in which economic developers can increase economic opportunity for this special population.
