HUD Invites Comments on Opportunity Zones

HUD would like to invite your comments on HUD's latest Request for Information, FR-6155-N-01 Review of HUD Policy in Opportunity Zones. Created by the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Opportunity Zones are distressed communities that provide tax benefits to investors who make new investments in the Zones.

As the Chair of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council, the Secretary of HUD is very interested in all the levers HUD can pull to make Opportunity Zones vibrant economic engines for their residents. Don't be wary of making outside-the-box suggestions. Feel free to answer as many of the questions as you like.
