How can Opportunity Zones be a useful investment tool for your community? On August 22, MHP delved into that question on a conference call with more than 100 registrants, moderated by Elizabeth Glidden, MHP Director of Strategic Initiatives & Policy with special guests Mayor Emily Larson, City of Duluth; Amy McCulloch, Deputy Director, Twin Cities LISC; Pam Kramer, Executive Director, Duluth LISC; and Ryan Baumtrog, Assistant Commissioner of Minnesota Housing.
Speakers explored what local communities, as well as development and lending partners, should be considering in advance of more explicit federal and state guidance. They also discussed how to better understand the potential of Opportunity Zones, explore investment funds, develop project pipelines, and establish community values for potential projects. Below, find a recording of the call, additional resources, and responses to questions submitted around the call.
