Federal Reserve webinar – aired Tuesday, July 9, 2013
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. The LMI population has fared worse overall than higher-income groups and as well as faced unique, adverse conditions on several fronts.

The session will consider:
- How the LMI population has fared relative to other income segments,
- Changes and challenges experienced relative to job availability, credit access, affordable housing, and basic needs, and
- Ways the findings can inform service design and delivery.

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