Thank you to those that joined LOCUS, the First and Main coalition, the Economic Innovation Group, and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) for Understanding your Opportunity Zones on Tuesday, June 26th. If you missed the live event, you can watch the recorded version below:
The new federal Opportunity Zones program is one of the most substantial pieces of legislation targeting community revitalization and economic development in America’s lowest income communities today. However, the program is still in its infancy, leaving state and local governments, foundations, advocates, and private sector professionals with many questions about its implementation and operation across America’s 55 territories and states.
The webinar shed light on several of these unanswered questions; it addressed the Opportunity Zones program’s economic context and incentives, as well as the policies and practices needed by stakeholders to achieve equitable development outcomes in America’s most distressed communities.
The following resources will help you guide your real estate, policy, and development activities in our nation’s newly designated Opportunity Zones:
- Understanding your Opportunity Zones webinar presentation slides
