WHITE HOUSE AND HUD PUBLISH OPPORTUNITY ZONE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN


WASHINGTON, D.C. - The White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council (“Council”) today published its Implementation Plan, outlining to President Donald J. Trump a detailed work plan for how the Council—chaired by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson—will accomplish the goals specified in Executive Order 13583 of December 12, 2018.

The Implementation Plan explains the various subcommittees of the Council, as well as describes the strategy to implement administrative reforms and initiatives that will target, streamline, coordinate, and optimize Federal resources in economically distressed communities, including Opportunity Zones. Read the Implementation Plan here.

“Few programs in modern American history have the potential to touch the lives of so many people as powerfully as Opportunity Zones, which are home to roughly 35 million Americans,” said Secretary Carson. “Through this Plan, the 16 agencies and the Federal-State partnerships that comprise the Council will help deliver the public-sector investment and guidance that communities need to unlock the full potential of Opportunity Zones to  stimulate economic development and job creation.”

In this report, the Council is described as containing the following work streams and associated goals:

  • Economic Development: Leverage Federal grants and loans in a more integrated way to develop dilapidated properties and provide basic infrastructure and financial tools to attract private investment.
  • Entrepreneurship: Leverage government lending and grants to stimulate access to private capital and promote programs that assist entrepreneurs.
  • Safe Neighborhoods: Combat drug addiction and the opioid crisis, reduce crime, enhance public safety, and address environmental contamination obstacles to development.
  • Education and Workforce Development: Improve the efficacy of K-12 and community college career and technical education and workforce development programs to better prepare workers in distressed communities for jobs.
  • Measurement: Develop robust reporting and analytics to measure the impact of Opportunity Zones.

More than 160 programs have already been identified by the Council in order to increase targeting to Opportunity Zones through grant preference points, loan qualifications, reduced fees, and eligibility criteria modifications. The Council member agencies have already taken action to better target over 50 programs to Opportunity Zones.

In addition to developing an “OpportunityZones.gov” website, the Council and its Executive Director Scott Turner will be conducting listening tour sessions of rural, urban, and suburban Opportunity Zones and other distressed communities throughout the remainder of 2019.

Laura is the epitome of what I look for in a real estate broker. Her charisma and market knowledge is only out done by her hard work and willingness to go above and beyond for her clients. She really has her thumb on the pulse of the Palm Beach County single-family market. James
I'm extremely happy to be in a position to give testimonial to the professionalism and competence of Laura Hepworth. For many months, I agonized over the decision of selling my property in Port St. Lucie. Once I made the decision the rest was easy. Laura guided me through the entire process and the fact that I was living outside the state of Florida made no difference. Every document was thoroughly explained in a simple and concise manner. Laura is a consummate professional, with vast knowledge in the field of real estate. She is competent, honest and stood by me from the beginning to the end. If I should ever conduct another real estate transaction in the state of Florida, I will will not do it without the advice and guidance of Laura Hepworth..............Thank you Laura! Sincerely, Melvon Herbert Melvon Herbert
