Opportunity Zones

Created by changes to the tax code in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, Opportunity Zones are state-nominated, economically depressed communities that are in need of new investment. These investments could, under certain circumstances, be eligable for preferential tax treatment in an effort to help spur economic development.

Foundations can and should play a role in supporting the eco-system that will ensure the success of opportunity zones.
