Opportunity Zones Workshop - Norwalk
Norwalk Public Library
1 Belden Avenue, Norwalk, CT 06850
In December 2017, federal lawmakers created the federal Opportunity Zones program for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds - private investment vehicles dedicated to community, business, real estate, and economic development activities in America's lowest-income communities.
CERC, DECD, Pullman & Comley, and the Greater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce invite you to learn more about the new federal Opportunity Zones program and how to grow business through long-term investments in low-income communities.
This event will provide a comprehensive background and expert analysis of the new program, as well as recommendations for cities, philanthropies, advocates, and private sector representatives interested in Opportunity Fund creation, operation, and management and equitable development outcomes throughout our nation's 7,927 newly designated Opportunity Zones.
