    Wednesday, December 11, 03:30 pm - 04:30 pm
    408 A
    Town Meeting Conversations
    Track 2: Financing Options, Real Estate, & Economic Development
    There are numerous and diverse types of tools and incentives available to communities for tackling the challenges of financing brownfields redevelopment. With the passage of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, communities now have a new federal incentive in their toolbox: Opportunity Zones. Opportunity Zone designation enables communities to attract private capital into distressed neighborhoods. This session will provide an overview of the Opportunity Zone program, update participants on the status of federal Internal Revenue Service guidance, discuss how to layer Opportunity Funds into a project’s capital stack, and showcase local efforts to attract investment.
