Connecting Communities Audio Conference

News & Info from Urban Financial Services Coalition

From Recession Through Recovery:
The Changing Conditions of Low- to Moderate-Income America
Join a Connecting Communities ® audioconference on Tuesday, July 9 from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern to learn more about the changing conditions of low- and moderate-income America.

This session will present findings from recent research on how the low- and moderate-income (LMI) population has been affected by the Great Recession and subsequent recovery. The LMI population has fared worse overall than higher-income groups and as well has faced unique, adverse conditions on several fronts. This research is based on a summary of quantitative and qualitative data collected through a quarterly survey of organizations that provide services to LMI clients.

The session will consider:
How the LMI population has fared relative to other income segments
Changes and challenges experienced relative to job availability, credit access, affordable housing and basic needs
Ways the findings can inform service design and delivery
