Does your organization work to help low- and moderate-income populations? The Kansas City Fed seeks your help in understanding the economic conditions of the populations you serve. External LinkSign up to take the External LinkCommunity Conditions Survey – just four times over two years – and you can help inform national monetary policy decisions.

The survey tracks low- and moderate-income community conditions. We share the results with the Kansas City Fed president and incorporate them into the External LinkBeige Book, which characterizes regional economic conditions based on mostly qualitative information. The Kansas City Fed also releases the survey results and uses what you tell us to create and adjust our own community development programming.

If you have questions, please contact Steven Howland, assistant economist, Community Development.
