Register now for the 2019 Policy Summit! Connecting People & Places to Opportunity will explore solutions to challenges that low- and moderate-income communities face. Sessions will address questions such as: how are an individual's prospects for getting ahead changing given growing regional disparities, persistent poverty, and racial segregation? Are place-based or people-based policies more effective, and in what contexts? What can policymakers and practitioners do to improve the likelihood that people, businesses, and communities are set up for long-term success in today's marketplace?

The Cleveland Fed will host the event in partnership with the Federal Reserve Banks of Chicago, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and St. Louis. The summit will take place on June 19–21 in Cincinnati. Learn more about the event, and follow @CleveFed_ComDev for updates.

Speakers will include:
