CDFA Texas Webinar: The Latest on Opportunity Zones

With the passage of the Tax Cut & Jobs Act, Opportunity Zones are emerging as a potentially powerful federal economic development tool that aims to improve the outcomes of distressed communities across the country. Opportunity Zones can be found in select low-income census tracts that were designated at the beginning of the year by the state and approved by the U.S. Treasury. During this webinar, attendees will delve into the basics of Opportunity Zones and Opportunity Funds, how to identify qualified projects and businesses, and the ways to build a local investment strategy. Speakers include Byron Sarhangian from Snell & Wilmer; Michael Perrine from Baker Tilly Capital LLC., and Robin Bentley from the City of Dallas.
