We partner with trusted, industry-leading economic development organizations across the nation.
The Governance Project
The Governance Project works closely with key officials in states and cities across the U.S. to help them strategically align stakeholders to achieve the Opportunity Zone incentive’s aims of inclusive growth in distressed areas. The Governance Project is working with The Opportunity Exchange to build GroundUp, a simple, free tool for generating key financial projects.
The Council of Development Finance Agencies
The Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) is a national association of the nation’s leading and most knowledgeable members of the development finance community representing public, private and non-profit entities alike. CDFA has partnered with The Opportunity Exchange (TOE) to provide discounted access to The Opportunity Exchange for CDFA Members. “As CDFA members work to build investment strategies for their opportunity zones, we’re confident that the Opportunity Exchange is the ideal partner to help realize that vision and drive sustainable capital in their community, ” said Katie Kramer, Vice President of CDFA.
The Urban Institute is a nonprofit research organization that believes in the power of evidence to improve lives and strengthen communities.The Urban Institute created a Community Impact Assessment Tool to assess the potential social impacts of local Opportunity Zone investments using evidence-based indicators. The Opportunity Exchange provided feedback on a prototype of the tool, and the Urban Institute worked with Opportunity CLE to test the tool in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.This tool is publicly and freely available, and it is designed to help local stakeholders target support to projects that strengthen communities and benefit residents. It can help integrate community impact strategy into your OZ work -- something we know a lot of communities think about regularly.
