Opportunity Zones are a new tax incentive created to spur investment in designated low-income census tracts. Taxpayers can reduce or eliminate capital gains through qualified investments in businesses or real estate within an Opportunity Zone. The economy in the Houston-Galveston region is recovering from Hurricane Harvey, and low-income communities in the region were disproportionately affected by Harvey’s floodwaters. Attracting investments to the region’s Opportunity Zones will speed the long-term economic recovery of these communities.
H-GAC, the U.S. Economic Development Administration, and the International Economic Development hosted an Opportunity Zones Summit on Monady, August 19, 2019, at H-GAC.
