The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created the much talked about Opportunity Zones, a new tax incentive designed to drive long-term equity capital to low-income communities nationwide. What does it mean for communities in Arizona?

Join Pima County based economic development professionals, community-based organizations, investors, developers, philanthropy, public sector partners, and other regional stakeholders to discuss the following questions and more:

  • What do we know about Opportunity Zones and how they will work?
  • What types of investments will be feasible through Opportunity Funds?
  • How can local and state partners prepare for and engage with this new tool?
  • What roles can different sectors play to ensure that low-income communities benefit from and participate in the economic growth and development generated by Opportunity Zones and Funds?
