Choosing Connecticut’s Opportunity Zones

Posted on by Kristi Sullivan

Twenty-seven communities in Connecticut have federally-designated Opportunity Zones - a unique tax incentive program and economic development tool to benefit economically-distressed communities. 

In this episode of CERCONOMY, Kristi Sullivan, CERC’s Vice President of Marketing, is joined by David Kooris, Deputy Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, to discuss the efforts that Connecticut is undertaking to support the 72 Opportunity Zones here in the state.

As a part of these efforts, DECD will be hosting a conference October 30th in New Haven to bring together real estate developers, property owners, fund managers and investors, attorneys, accounting professionals, and economic development professionals for a day filled with panel discussions, interactive discussions and networking to inform stakeholders about business opportunities and how to leverage local assets and resources to take advantage of some of Connecticut’s best investment opportunities.
