Join the Economic Innovation Group (EIG) on Tuesday, September 21, for a discussion on how state and local governments are considering Opportunity Zones (OZ) as part of broader strategies to deliver COVID-19 and economic relief funding, and how OZ equity is being integrated into the suite of economic development financing tools. 

The unprecedented level of recent federal funding directed to city, regional, and state governments has presented an opportunity for public-sector leaders to strategically structure programs and deploy capital positioned to attract OZ investment. Guest speakers will discuss considerations for targeting this public investment to OZs, including eligible uses of funds, community needs, and alignment with investor needs and behavior in the OZ marketplace, as well as insights on program design and deployment strategies. 


Join us September 21, 2021, from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

Recordings from previous webinars in the OZ Series can be found on the Economic Innovation Group’s Opportunity Zones Resources webpage.
