As Opportunity Zone regulations are unraveled and interpreted to encourage investment in low-income neighborhoods, operating businesses and Community Development Corporations (CDCs) may be big winners through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. 
This workshop was a discussion on Opportunity Zones, the eligible census tracts designated as Opportunity Zones, and how Opportunity Zone funds may be a viable investment vehicle to deploy private investment in operating businesses and projects located in underserved communities.
