White House Announces List of Federal Programs with Opportunity Zone Preference

Opportunity Zones are federally certified census tracts in low-income areas that provide tax incentives for capital investment. These zones are intended to spur investment in under-served communities, both urban and rural. The White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council was created to help coordinate resources that can be used in Opportunity Zones and other economically disadvantaged communities. The Council has identified over 160 federal programs for which Opportunity Zone preference can be made available. For a full list of these federal programs, click here.
