Opportunity Zones: Basic Concepts to Attract Community Investment in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

Thursday, July 9, 2020

Katie Kramer | Vice President, Council of Development Finance Agencies
Lillian A. Plata | Environmental Services Founder, Nee Plata Law, LLC (NP Law)
David Southgate | Senior Advisor, Center for Creative Land Recycling
July 9, 2020 | 11:30am - 12:30pm EST

Opportunity Zones are designated census tracts eligible to receive investment in qualified real estate and businesses. Included as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, this tax incentive allows investors with capital gains to invest in OZ communities through 2026. Understanding the structure of those investments is essential to attracting capital and building long-term strategies that lead to community revitalization. Experts from the Council of Development Finance Agencies, a national non-profit association dedicated to the advocacy, education, research, and networking to assist the development finance industry, will explain the OZ landscape, investor trends, emerging approaches and challenges, and the implications of OZs for cross-sector development and cooperation between municipalities, communities, and investors in the USVI and Puerto Rico. The hour-long webinar will be conducted in English and geared toward government entities, non-profits, and property owners.
This interactive online meeting is FREE, but requires registration. You will receive an email with the information about joining the meeting after registering.
