Leveraging Fort Wayne’s Opportunity Zones

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 established the Opportunity Zones (OZ) program, an economic development tool aimed at catalyzing new, long-term investments and development in economically challenged urban and rural communities across the country.

There are three types of eligible Opportunity Zone investments:

Investing in a qualified business located within an Opportunity Zone, in exchange for stock.

Taking a partnership interest in a Qualified Opportunity Zone partnership.

Business property used within Qualified Opportunity Zones, meeting thresholds for substantial improvement.

Fort Wayne / Allen County includes 10 Qualified Opportunity Zones. Learn more about investment possibilities:
