Join the Economic Innovation Group on Tuesday, October 11 to learn about recent efforts to evaluate the impact of Opportunity Zones (OZ) investments and create networks and systems for information-sharing and compliance.
Leading OZ stakeholders have incorporated impact criteria into their investment strategies, and are actively monitoring the impact of their OZ investments. Absent comprehensive and publicly available data on OZ investment activities, efforts to share information and articulate impact have led to an increased level of transparency. By elevating proven OZ models that measure job creation, development of affordable homes, and small business expansion, Qualified Opportunity Funds are helping to strengthen the OZ ecosystem, set industry standards, and encourage others to leverage the OZ policy to drive high-impact investments and positive community outcomes.
During this webinar, speakers will share information about methodologies for impact evaluation and discuss efforts to build stakeholder networks that benefit from information-sharing and data analytics. Speakers will also provide insights on the importance of integrating impact screening as part of OZ deal selection, and sharing the community and economic development benefits driven by OZ investments.
