Delaware Opportunity Zone Summit

The 2017 tax bill includes a new incentive for investors that provides relief from federal capital gains tax when invested in designated redevelopment areas, known as Opportunity Zones. This tax benefit has captured the attention of a wide range of stakeholders — from businesses and investors to economic development practitioners. 

On December 5, at UD's STAR Campus, the Biden Institute will host a roundtable discussion that will bring together stakeholders including national thought leaders, government officials, developers, investors and business leaders. The summit will provide an opportunity to learn more about these new incentives and to assist communities in realizing the full potential of Opportunity Zones located in urban, rural and university-anchored communities. The state of Delaware has zones located in all three areas and therefore serves as a model for the rest of the country.

Additional details to come.
