The Changing Landscape of Community Development
Linking Research with Policy and Practice in Low-Income Communities

The Community Affairs Officers of the Federal Reserve System invite paper submissions for the seventh Federal Reserve Community Affairs Research Conference, to be held April 28-29, 2011, in Arlington, Virginia. The goal of the conference is to highlight new research that can directly inform community development policy and practice in the wake of the deepest recession since the pre-war period.

Researchers from a wide variety of disciplines are invited to submit papers that present new and innovative research under the following five broad topic areas: Understanding Community Change, The Future of Consumer Credit, Bridging the Divide between People and Place, Measuring the Impact of Community Development, and Community Development Finance.

Papers outside of these specific topics that fit within the underlying theme are also welcome, including research papers on small business, microenterprise, social enterprise and self-employment, economic development, economics and identity, green building and the green economy, and neighborhood stabilization. The deadline to submit a paper or extended abstract is September 15, 2010.

Please visit the official conference website for additional information regarding the conference. If you have further questions, please contact Carolina Reid, research manager, Community Development, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at
