It takes a village. Community commitment and support are essential for successful economic development in Opportunity Zones. We need the following partners:
- Lending Institutions – provide financing options for projects located in Opportunity Zones
- Local and Regional Economic Development Groups – help highlight the existence of Opportunity Zones and the local assets that can support development in those areas
- Colleges and Universities – help anchor research and workforce development programs in and around Opportunity Zones
- Local Government – create long-term development plans for Opportunity Zones areas and craft policies that support economic activity around them.
