These events are designed to inform and educate about the new Opportunity Zones - where they’re located, eligible types of eligible projects, benefits for investment in these Zones, and how the process works, etc. Each event will have an Opportunity Zone subject matter expert presenting. Two of the events will have a speaker from Minnesota Housing on programs to assist with housing development, the other two will have a speaker from the MN Dept. of Employment & Economic Development (DEED) to talk about business finance resources, and all events will have a speaker from the ECRDC to talk about local resources to assist with both housing and business development.
The events are free and open to the public.
