About the Webinar

Addressing the economic inequalities at play in low-income and underserved communities is of particular importance to the Richmond Fed Community Development team. We convene business, government and community leaders to discuss a myriad of economic issues impacting our communities.

One topic gaining attention are Opportunity Zones, a relatively new investment approach to transforming low-income and underserved communities. OZs are low-income census tracts where tax incentives may accrue to those who invest and hold their capital gains in OZ assets or property. Created as part of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Congress in December 2017, OZs are a new federal economic development tool to improve the outcomes of distressed communities around the country.



The workshop is for community development financial institutions, lending intermediaries, affordable housing advocates, financial institutions, academia, developers and community economic development practitioners.
