The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created Opportunity Zones, a new community investment tool designed to drive long-term capital to rural and low-income urban communities throughout the nation. Created as part of tax reform, Opportunity Zones offers incentives to private investors taking equity stake in communities at the nexus of need and opportunity. Tiered tax benefits are tied to investments at five, seven, and ten-year terms. Benefits include a temporary deferral and small reduction of tax liability, as well as - in some circumstances - a full exemption on earnings. 

Qualified businesses can also apply for a Tax Abatement to waive a portion of applicable property taxes on new construction projects for up to ten years. Find out more here.

The economic growth of a community is dependent upon highway development to enhance mobility. Roads are the arteries through which the economy pulses. By linking producers to markets, workers to jobs, students to school, and the sick to hospitals, roads are vital to any development agenda.
