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 as faced unique, adverse conditions on several fronts.

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, and
  • Ways the findings can inform service design and delivery.

The presenters are:

  • Kelly Edmiston, senior economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City
  • Ona Porter, executive director, Prosperity Works
  • Steven Shepelwich, senior community affairs advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (moderator)
