Opportunity Zones: Exploring their Potential to Drive Long-Term Revitalization Capital to Distressed Communities

September 27, 2018 | 12:00 - 1:00 pm EDT: Click here to register 

Created as part of 2017 federal tax reform, the new Opportunity Zones program is designed to drive long-term capital to distressed communities by providing tax benefits for investments in Opportunity Funds. Its massive scale and flexible design has the potential to dramatically shift the status quo in communities that struggle to attract capital but, at the same time, many questions remain about whether the program has sufficient protections in place to ensure that funds truly flow to the communities most in need. Join this webinar for a high-level overview of what Opportunity Zones are, how the program is structured, and a sense of the anticipated benefits and potential pitfalls as this enormous new mechanism for neighborhood revitalization gets underway.

Presenter: Rachel Reilly, Director of Impact Investing, Enterprise Community Partners
