Opportunity Knocks: Opportunity Zones and Their Impact

Many conversations have been held about the potential impact of the new Opportunity Zone program on the city of Boston, but none have been held in the neighborhoods designated as Opportunity Zones. BECMA, in partnership with the Boston Ujima Project and LISC Boston, is changing this by convening a conversation meant to bring all stakeholders — residents, business owners, developers, investors, civic and nonprofit organizations — to the table in or near Boston Opportunity Zones. The goals of the discussion are to:

  1. Share critical resources and information on what Opportunity Zones are
  2. Develop community guidelines for desirable Opportunity Zone investment projects
  3. Connect investors and developers with business owners and residents in Opportunity Zones

Attendees can expect to follow this schedule:

5:30PM – Registration, networking

6:00PM – Welcoming from partners

6:15PM – “What the Heck is an Opportunity Zone?”

6:30PM – Facilitated table workshops

7:45PM – Closing, networking

Ticket types are broken up in a way that will allow us to match the proper groups with one another
