Session Length: 120 Min


The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 created Opportunity Zones, designated areas that are designed to connect private capital with low-income and rural communities across America.

With over 8,700 locations in the U.S. (including Washington D.C and territories), come see where your next project and investment can take place.

The panel will discuss the location strategy of the Opportunity Zones to include an interactive mapping system. Participants will be able to see prospective investment locations and learn about projects.
