Event description

Description

We have reached capacity at this time, but have a waitlist available. Thank you for your interest in this event. Audio & PowerPoints from the event will be shared.

Join us on February 1st to learn more about Opportunity Zones (OZ), gain insight into what’s eligible for OZ investments, and understand OZ implementation issues.

Newly-created and quickly-developing, Opportunity Zones will benefit the Capital Region by motivating increased investments of “patient capital” into our underserved communities. Opportunity Zones have been enacted at the federal level, designated by each state’s Governor, and are being defined by federal agencies at the same time as investors are beginning to direct funds into emerging OZ funds.

The February 1st Capital Region Opportunity Zone Forum will gather key leaders including investors and advisors, project developers and businesses, community organizations, and local jurisdictions, as we work together to build stronger and more equitable communities. Join us, and join this active conversation!
