Why Get Certified As An Opportunity Zone Advisor?

Hundreds of Billions Have Already Been Deployed In Opportunity Zones In Just The Last 3 Years!

Fifty-two million Americans live in economically distressed communities. These urban, rural, and suburban communities are located in every corner of the United States and its territories. Despite the growing national economy, these communities are plagued by high levels of poverty, failing schools, job scarcity, unsafe neighborhoods, and a lack of investment capital. In response, our historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act included a powerful new tax incentive—Opportunity Zones—to spur economic development and job creation by encouraging long-term investment in low-income communities nationwide. For the Financial and Real Estate Professionals, the Opportunity Zone program can be complex in understanding as it applies to your unique project or client's needs.

Opportunity Zones Are More Than You Think

THE OPPORTUNITY ZONE PROGRAM NEEDS EXPERT ADVISORS PROPERLY EDUCATED. THE OPPORTUNITY ZONE PROGRAM DOES NOT EXPIRE UNTIL 2047!

The increasingly globalized economy has meant prosperity for many, yet millions of Americans have been overlooked, devoid of the same benefits or the potential for upward mobility that comes from widespread investment. Fifty-two million Americans live in economically distressed communities, including the thirty-five million who reside in Opportunity Zones. A lack of investment has contributed to this economic distress, and a lack of access to economic opportunity can lead to negative outcomes in the vital measures that matter to all communities, including high unemployment rates, stagnant wages, low graduation rates, unsafe neighborhoods, and shorter life expectancy. To help these communities, Opportunity Zones were introduced in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which President Donald J. Trump signed into law in December of 2017.

What's The Big Deal About Opportunity Zones?


An Opportunity Zone is a powerful new tool intended to stimulate investment in distressed communities. Harnessing this tool to support short- and long-term community objectives requires careful and thoughtful planning. Opportunity Zones.org provides a roadmap to help communities, investors, businesses, developers, CDFI’s, and nonprofits plan for potential investments in Opportunity Zones by understanding local needs, aligning community assets, establishing regulatory tools and financing incentives to support investments and forming partnerships toward equitable and inclusive community development. This COZA™ program serves as an guide to ALL THINGS Opportunity Zones.


Opportunity Zones were created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. An Opportunity Zone is defined by the Internal Revenue Service as “an economically-distressed community where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment. Localities qualify as Opportunity Zones if they have been nominated for that designation by the State and that nomination has been certified by the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury via his delegation authority to the Internal Revenue Service.” Opportunity Zones are defined by census tract boundaries, and per Federal law, State chief executives (Governors) nominated the census tracts to be certified and designated as Opportunity Zones by the Department of the Treasury. In addition to the tax benefits that align to these designated census tracts, the Federal, State, tribal, local and territorial governments are also aligning resources to Opportunity Zones. Together, public and private investment resources can be leveraged for economic development in these communities.

Opportunity Zones. Focusing On Economic Development

Job Creation

The 30 million small businesses across the United States create two out of three net new jobs each year. These businesses serve as the engines that drive our economy, and their expansion into Opportunity Zones will uplift economically distressed areas by providing new investments, new jobs, and dynamic economic systems.

Community Revitalization

Through stronger businesses, communities are better equipped to withstand economic downturn and, in turn, protect those same investments. Targeted public investment in infrastructure, transportation, public spaces, and housing will help Opportunity Zones attract private capital to withstand periods of economic distress.

Opportunity Zones Support Investment In

More than 8,700 census tracts were designated as Opportunity Zones across all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. For communities with increasing housing insecurity and growing economic inequality, an Opportunity Zone designation provides a chance to shape strategies and policies that harness this powerful incentive, while serving the needs of current and future residents. Communities across the country must prepare for potential investments in Opportunity Zones and leverage support. By thinking beyond individual transactions, communities can align, direct and leverage these investments toward transformational community outcomes.
