Join Assemblymember Reyes, and the Economic Innovation Group, for a discussion on the new federal Opportunity Zones program. The new tax program encourages long-term private capital investment in America’s low-income urban and rural communities.
The webinar will provide participating community stakeholders with the knowledge and resources needed to guide equitable economic and community development outcomes in the Inland Empire's lowest-income census tracts. Discussion topics will include:
The economic context for the Opportunity Zones program,
Program guidelines and implementation,
Opportunity Fund creation, operation, and management,
Best policies and practices for cities, philanthropies, advocates, and the private sector to think about now.
Joining us via Skype for the webinar will be Economic Innovation Groups, Director of Research Kenan Fikri
