Opportunity zones were created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to encourage investment and economic development across the country. Opportunity zones are identified by state governors using census tract data. More than 30,000 Americans live and work in opportunity zones and many are not even aware. Small Businesses located in designated opportunity zones can take advantage of these investments and benefit from perks uniquely available to businesses in these geographical areas.

Join Local Equity, the Governor's Office of Business and Economic DevelopmentPacific Premier Bank and Small Business Majority for a free webinar about how small businesses in opportunity zones can attract investments, loans and contracts.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • A general explanation of opportunity zones
  • What this designation means for your business
  • How to attract investment/loans if you are in one of these regions
  • How to secure government contracts if you are in an opportunity zone

A question and answer session will follow.
