November 13th-14th, 2018 | Cleveland, Ohio

Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland |Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation | Cleveland Neighborhood Progress


Themed “Building Advocacy for Middle Neighborhoods,” this convening will bring together the growing movement of practitioners, policymakers, and researchers dedicated to stabilizing “on the edge” neighborhoods around the country. Participants will share insights and learn about recent research efforts. The meeting will also provide practical information about how to mobilize support to better serve these communities.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, and The American Assembly are partnering on this invitation-only convening, which will take place one year after our first gathering in Baltimore.

A Call for Session Proposals was issued to help shape the agenda for the convening and has closed. The aim was to learn what plenary discussion and breakout topics would be most interesting and beneficial to practitioners. Session proposals were due Thursday, August 2, 2018.
