The Connecticut Economic Resource Center is hosting an informational meeting on January 23rd about the federal Opportunity Zones program created last December. The program allows investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds - private investment vehicles dedicated to community, business, real estate, and economic development activities in America's lowest-income communities.
The workshop will feature general information about the new program, as well as recommendations for cities, philanthropies, advocates, and private sector representatives interested in Opportunity Fund creation, operation, and management. It's aimed at economic development professionals, real estate developers/brokers, potential investors, and small business owners/incubators.
The workshop on January 23rd is from 8am to 10:30 at the Palace Theater on Main Street in Danbury.
