The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works to promote sound and well-functioning financial systems and markets through its provision of industry and payment services, advancement of infrastructure reform in key markets and training and educational support to international institutions.
The Outreach and Education function engages, empowers and educates the Second District communities that the Bank serves, especially civic leaders, students, educators, small business owners, policymakers and the general public. It furthers the Bank's commitment to the region by listening to the communities we serve and leveraging our unique attributes to positively impact school and university programs, as well as analysis and research.
These one-day forums provided an opportunity
for small businesses in the Second District to
learn about small business loans and other
assistance available through government
agencies, financial institutions and non-profits to
help them grow their business. Each forum is
customized to suit the business needs of the
community, and in partnership with local
experts. These forums ran from April through
June of 2013 in East Harlem, Long Island,
Buffalo, Brooklyn and Passaic.
