The Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI) site from PHI's Build Healthy Places Network lifts up the efforts of how regional Federal Reserve Banks play a critical role in convening stakeholders, supporting cross-sector solutions that promote economic mobility, and improving health.

3 new resources spotlighting select Federal Reserve Banks and the promising cross-sector initiatives taking place in their region

In North Carolina, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond brought together financial institutions, public health departments, health systems and hospitals to create “data dashboards” that connect physical and financial health for each of the state’s one hundred counties.

You might not think of health when you think of the Federal Reserve—but maybe you should. The root causes of poor health and poverty are often the same, and now regional Federal Reserve Banks play a critical role in convening stakeholders, supporting cross-sector solutions that promote economic mobility, and improving health.

The Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI) site, launched in 2017 by PHI’s Build Healthy Places Network, lifts up the efforts of these regional banks. Three resources—a meeting directory, the “conference-in-a-box” tool, and the HCI blog series—spotlight each Federal Reserve Bank and the promising cross-sector initiatives taking place in their region.
