Equitable Development Strategies for Neighbors

APRIL 21, 2015 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET


Interested in learning how communities are overcoming blight and abandonment and working toward developing safe, decent, and durably affordable communities in the Southeast? Join the Atlanta Fed's Community and Economic Development program for a discussion with four practitioners at the forefront of this work.

Hear the perspectives and strategies of a community development practitioner, an attorney, a researcher, and a government official who are all supporting revitalization efforts in the Southeast. This webinar session occurs Tuesday, April 21, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET. It will feature speakers from Atlanta, Birmingham, and New Orleans who will share their experiences working to help transform blighted communities into desirable ones. The presenters will discuss how code enforcement laws and data analysis are important to revitalization efforts and what role community development financing and government programs can play in the process.
