As a fund manager, we raise capital and invest it across the country in high-impact community projects. Investments from our Opportunity Zone Funds help build more equitable, inclusive communities.

Together with developers and investors, we create:

  • Good homes with rents people can afford
  • High-impact community facilities
  • Economic growth in neighborhoods that need it
Designed to spur economic development, Opportunity Zones provide tax incentives for investors who invest new capital in businesses in a qualified Opportunity Zone.

Focus Areas

  • Homes People Can Afford: Create and preserve good homes with affordable rents while preventing the displacement of current residents.
  • Upward Mobility and Resilience: Spark local hiring through mixed-use projects, including "live and work" community facilities, and make homes and communities green, sustainable and close to public transit.
  • Racial Equity: Partner with Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and other housing providers who have been historically marginalized.

About Opportunity Zones

Designating Opportunity Zones
In 2018, governors nominated Opportunity Zones in each state. By June, U.S. Treasury had approved Opportunity Zones in all 50 states, five territories, and Washington, D.C. 

Tax Benefits of Investing in Opportunity Zones
Opportunity Zones offer tax incentives to private investors taking an equity stake in community development. Tiered tax benefits are tied to investments at five, seven, and 10-year terms. Benefits include a temporary deferral and reduction of tax liability, as well as (in some circumstances) a full exemption on earnings.
