What are Opportunity Zones?

Opportunity Zones are a new community development initiative established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide.  The Opportunity Zones initiative provides a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their capital gains into Opportunity Funds that are dedicated to investing into Opportunity Zones.

As part of our Community-Based Economic Development (CBED) program this website is designed to serve as an information and facilitation platform for Hawaii’s Opportunity Zones.  Continual updates will be made with materials for investors (Opportunity Funds), those with projects (businesses and real estate developers) and business service and advisory organizations (accounts, lawyers, real estate brokers, and financial advisors).
