Esther George - President and CEO of the
Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

As one of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks that serve as operating arms of our nation’s central bank, the Kansas City Fed and its branch offices continue to carry out our key functions in our seven-state region during this extraordinary time. We have taken necessary steps focused on ensuring the health and well-being of our teams in Kansas City, Denver, Oklahoma City and Omaha, and our established contingency plans are allowing us to work effectively in the current environment.

For the banking system, we stand ready to lend through the discount window and address any regulatory or supervisory concerns that may surface. For the residents and businesses of our region, we continue to closely monitor developments affecting economic conditions and access to credit, working closely with our counterparts across the Federal Reserve System.

Our ability to respond to the needs of our region and the nation is an important feature of the Federal Reserve System’s design. It is a source of strength in serving the public.
