Maryland Opportunity Zones


The Opportunity Zone program is a nationwide initia​tive ​administered by the U.S. Treasury created under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Job​s Act. The program provides federal tax incentives for investment in distressed communities over the next 10 years. Areas designated as Opportunity Zones will be able to reap the benefits of capital gains to help redevelop underserved communities.

Developed by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development to facilitate Opportunity Zone investment, the Maryland Opportunity Zone Information Exchange is the first comprehensive, interactive resource of its kind in the nation.

The Information Exchange will serve as 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. ​​​​​​​​
