KHC’s Edwin King to join Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Community Advisory Council

Edwin King, executive director of Kentucky Housing Corporation, has been selected to serve on the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Community Advisory Council.

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) is responsible for research, analysis, and engagement on economic issues facing underserved and lower-income individuals and communities across the federal Fourth District, comprising of Eastern Kentucky, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and the northern panhandle of West Virginia.

The CAC encompasses a diverse group of experts and leaders who not only represent geographic, demographic, and sector diversity, they also represent professions that may come from community development corporations, foundations, state and local government offices, labor representative, academic institutions, and other organizations focused on financial health, housing, small business, workforce development, and community development investments.

Together, the CAC will foster a better understanding among policymakers, community leaders, and private-sector decision makers of the challenges faced by underserved and lower-income individuals and communities, to promote data-driven solutions and practices; promote effective cooperation among community organizations, government agencies, financial institutions, and other practitioners to their mutual benefit; and foster the active engagement of depository institutions in providing credit and other banking services to their communities. King’s commitment to this service is two years.

King was appointed as executive director of Kentucky Housing Corporation in July of 2017, after serving a year and a half as vice chairman of KHC’s Board of Directors in the role as a proxy for William Landrum III, the state’s finance cabinet secretary.

“It is an honor to be serving on the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Community Advisory Council,” said King. “I look forward to serving with these members in support of the goals for this Council that will help the underserved in the communities of eastern Kentucky and others in District 4.”

In October of 2017, King was also elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the National Council of State Housing Agencies, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization created by the nation’s state housing finance agencies.

“Housing and lending challenges are unique to each geographic region of Kentucky,” said King. “My work, and the work of this Council, through input and collaboration will focus on solutions that make lasting impacts for families and individuals in Kentucky and across the nation.”
