Survey: How is COVID-19 impacting your community?

The Federal Reserve wants to hear from you.

Now, more than ever, we need to elevate community voices to inform meaningful actions. We want to hear from you and learn how the pandemic is affecting your community.

In April, the Federal Reserve System conducted a survey to better understand the range of challenges facing under-resourced and low-income communities as an effect of COVID-19. The findings are available in Perspectives from Main Street: The Impact of COVID-19 on Communities and the Entities Serving Them and helped us understand how the pandemic is impacting organizations, like yours, supporting community needs.

We are committed to fielding this survey every eight weeks to report on how the effects of COVID-19 are changing within communities over time. Please take this survey today. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.


The survey will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, June 12, 2020.

We also invite you to participate in the upcoming Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Fed & Main Street series, The Immigrant Experience during COVID-19, where key advocates will cover topics ranging from the challenges of immigrant populations during the pandemic to cross-sector efforts to address financial and economic disparities. In addition, visit the Community Resources on Coronavirus hub from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York that you may find useful.

Thank you for your time and for your shared commitment to supporting our communities. We encourage you to forward the survey link to others who have unique knowledge of what is happening in their communities.

Compliments of the Federal Reserve of New York.
