Chaired by Rutherford, the Task Force was formed to develop a state opportunity plan to “Align Opportunity Zone goals with state and local economic and cultural priorities,” according to Rutherford’s office. The regional summit will allow those attending to share information and discuss possibilities for Opportunity Zones in their area. The Opportunity Zone program is a nationwide initiative administered by the U.S. Treasury. Areas designated as Opportunity Zones will be able to reap the benefits of capital gains to help redevelop underserved communities. The Information Exchange is a virtual meeting place for investors, fund managers, property developers, new or expanding businesses and local stakeholders. It provides the latest Opportunity Zone news and investment activity; a locator for projects and businesses; and information on financial and other incentives available at the state, county and municipal level. Anyone can search and find what’s happening in Maryland’s Opportunity Zones through the Information Exchange on the maryland.
