Opportunity Zone Program

Overview

The Opportunity Zones tax incentive was established by Congress in the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act as an innovative approach to spur long-term private sector investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. This economic development initiative is based on the bipartisan Investing in Opportunities Act

Opportunity Zones may help address a number of challenges in Bexar County, including:

  • Promoting economic vitality in distressed areas of Bexar County.
  • Funding the development of workforce and affordable housing in areas with escalating prices and inventory shortages.
  • Funding new infrastructure to support population and economic growth. 
  • Upgrading the capability of existing underutilized assets through capital improvement investments. 

The Treasury Department designated 24 census tracts in Bexar County as “opportunity zones”.
