  • Native American/tribal community development
  • In addition, we would welcome applications from Community Reinvestment Act officers from intermediate small banks.

About the Council

The CDAC is composed of community, banking and labor leaders from throughout the Federal Reserve’s Tenth District, which includes Colorado, Kansas, western Missouri, Nebraska, northern New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming. Missouri and Kansas currently are well represented, so we are not seeking applicants from those states in 2022.

Council members are appointed to three-year terms and provide perspectives on community development issues throughout the year. Members also are expected to attend two meetings a year, typically in the spring and fall. Travel expenses are reimbursed by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Meetings will be online or in person depending on Centers for Disease Control guidance.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City established the CDAC in 2001 to provide Bank leaders a deeper understanding of community development issues affecting low- and moderate-income communities. CDAC members provide feedback on the Bank’s community development research, programs and resources. Council members also receive updates on the national and regional economies.

Applications are due 5:00 p.m. CST, Thursday, Sept. 30. All candidates will be notified of their selection status in December and new candidates will be announced in January 2022.

Questions may be submitted to kcca@kc.frb.org.
