Unlocking Opportunity Zones for Equitable Outcomes – 6/4 – Online
June 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Opportunity Zones program may be the largest and most significant federal community development initiative in U.S. history, with trillions of dollars in new private investment about to flow into pre-designated low-income communities around the country.
The question is whether these investments will benefit the people living in these communities, or will residents be displaced as new interest and development brings increased property values and rents?
Join the Smart Growth Network on Tuesday, June 4, at 1 p.m. Eastern for a webinar on Opportunity Zones, featuring Christopher Coes, Vice President for Real Estate Policy and External Affairs at Smart Growth America and Director of LOCUS: Responsible Real Estate Developers and Investors, and Stephanie Gidigbi, Director of Policy and Partnerships with the Healthy People and Thriving Communities Program at National Resources Defense Council. Register by submitting the form below and monitor the smartgrowth.org website for the second part of this webinar series in June.
