Opportunity Zones: Advancing infrastructure and community resilience on a national scale

In late 2018 and early 2019, billions of dollars will be flowing into the new tax-advantaged Qualified Opportunity Funds authorized by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. These funds will be seeking out investment opportunities in the 8,764 Opportunity Zones nationwide that have been designated by governors in all 50 states, and approved by U.S. Treasury in June 2018.

The Global Resilience Institute (GRI) seeks to develop a national model for how the Opportunity Zones can be leveraged to advance community resilience.
