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 & Education function engages, empowers and educates the public in the Second District. Our outreach mission furthers the Bank’s commitment to the region by listening to the communities we serve and developing programs, analysis and sponsored conferences and clinics to help meet their needs. Our education mission aims to advance public knowledge about the Federal Reserve System and its role in the economy.
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.
