About


Disparities of small business vitality by region, industry, firm size, and business life cycle reflect the uneven recovery in the broader economy. As a result, restoring health to the small business sector, and the credit market necessary to support its recovery, remain a priority for the Federal Reserve. 

The Federal Reserve helps small businesses access the technical and financial resources they need, by conducting research and data analyses, forging partnerships amongst industry stakeholders, and promoting innovative strategies and promising practices. These efforts generate new ideas and new approaches for understanding and meeting the needs of today's small business owners. This section brings together knowledge and insights from several key small business initiatives within the Federal Reserve System.
