The Coalition

The Opportunity Zones Coalition is a diverse membership-based group of Opportunity Fund managers, financial institutions, community intermediaries, non-profits, and service providers that are working together to support Opportunity Zones implementation and ecosystem development nationwide. Members of the Coalition receive timely market, regulatory, and technical updates and analysis; networking opportunities with fellow Coalition members, policymakers, and key OZ stakeholders; and opportunities to regularly engage with leading service providers and peers on technical matters such as fund structuring, deal structuring, fundraising, and more.
