Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco

In late 2021 the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco kicked off a series of roundtable discussions on climate change-related risks with community development professionals who work in low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities and communities of color.

Participants included real estate lenders and small business and consumer lenders serving urban, rural, and Tribal communities. Here's what we heard.
