Session Description:

This session will present findings from recent research on how the low- and moderate-income (LMI) population has beened affected by the Great Recession and subsequent recovery.

  • Ways the findings can inform service design and delivery.

  • Steven Shepelwich, senior community affairs advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (moderator)
