About: ULI Colorado invites you to explore the opportunity behind Opportunity Zones and how this new financing tool can be catalytic for communities, investors, and developers alike.

You may have heard the Opportunity Zone infomercial already. This tool has been in the making since the 2017 tax reform, enacted to incentivize long-term investment in low-income rural and urban communities across the nation.

But how do Opportunity Zones REALLY work? And with the sense of urgency to make investments and use new capital right away, how can you tap into this resource efficiently and responsibly?

This session gives you the-need-to-know basics but takes the conversation a step further using real case studies and scenarios.

Breakfast and continuing education credits will be provided.
