Join the Economic Innovation Group and Alfonso Costa, Jr., Deputy Chief of Staff at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, for an in-depth discussion of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council’s recent report on activities completed by the Council in its first year. 

The Council, which is comprised of 17 Federal agencies and Federal-State partnerships, was established by Executive Order in December 2018 to target, streamline, and coordinate Federal resources for Opportunity Zones and other economically distressed communities. In addition, the Council is engaging community leaders, investors, business owners, and policymakers throughout the nation to identify and disseminate information on emerging Opportunity Zones strategies and measure the impact of the policy. 

During this webinar, we will discuss: the 180 actions taken in efforts to stimulate economic development, encourage entrepreneurship, promote safe neighborhoods, and expand education and workforce development opportunities; the legislative recommendations included in the Council’s report; and the forthcoming Council reports on Opportunity Zones strategies from across the nation, as well as data measurement goals and methodologies.
