Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
Banks & Credit Unions
The Cleveland Fed isn’t a typical bank.
It’s one of the 12 Reserve Banks that together with the Board of Governors in Washington DC and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) comprise the nation’s central bank, which was created by Congress to provide the nation with a safer, more flexible, and more stable monetary and financial system. Our mission is founded in public service—strengthening the economic performance of the nation and our region and making a difference in the communities we serve.
The Cleveland Fed serves 17 million people across 169 counties in Ohio, western Pennsylvania, eastern Kentucky, and the northern panhandle of West Virginia.
