The Guide to Making Opportunity Zones Work

    opportunity zone guide oz

    Opportunity Zones (OZs) were created to stimulate economic development and job creation in low-income neighborhoods by incentivizing long-term investments in these areas. As COVID-19 and racial and economic inequality have heightened the needs of distressed communities, lingering questions remain about the initiative and how its potential stakeholders can benefit. 

    The Guide to Making Opportunity Zones Work seeks to provide a better understanding of the interconnected needs and goals of the various stakeholders in optimizing outcomes for all.

    Inside you'll find:

    • Plain-English breakdowns of the various terms, tests, and other rules specific to the world of OZs (with graphics and examples)
    • Individual chapters offering insights for specific OZ stakeholders
      • Investors
      • Fund managers
      • Real estate developers
      • Entrepreneurs and business owners
      • OZ community leaders
    • Plus, insights on how these groups fit together, and how they can collaborate to best drive new economic activity in struggling communities across America.
