OZ Webinar Series: Erie, PA – A City Comes Together to Unlock its Potential  

08.27.2019
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Erie is the quintessential example of an American legacy city harnessing the power of Opportunity Zones to share its vision of transformation with the nation. Many cities throughout the Heartland are at an inflection point as they navigate transitioning economies, shrinking populations, and reduced budgets. While working to reinvest in some of the nation’s poorest zip codes, Erie has made national headlines by taking an approach centered on collaboration, proactive outreach, and highlighting its emerging strengths in education, medicine, advanced manufacturing, tourism, and nascent Innovation District.
