The Opportunity Zone incentive, created by the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, is designed to spur economic development and job creation by encouraging long-term investments in low-income communities across the country. Opportunity Zones also have the potential to transform entrepreneurship, health and housing outcomes and increase workforce development opportunities, among other impacts.

There are more than 150 programs across multiple agencies where targeting, preference or additional support can be granted in the zones.  Come learn about how USDA Rural Development, SBA and HUD’s programs have the potential to align with your goals for Opportunity Zones.
