Opportunity Zone

Launch of the Opportunity Investment Consortium

The Opportunity Investment Consortium of Indiana officially launched in efforts to intentionally champion the transformation of Opportunity Zone neighborhoods into vibrant places for residents and businesses. The Consortium has just released an online portal to aid in matching projects in need of funding in these specified census tracts to potential investors.

In April, Governor Holcomb nominated 156 Indiana census tracts to become Opportunity Zones. Civic leaders took immediate action, coalescing to launch the first statewide consortium comprised of a public/private coalition of investors poised to invest in Opportunity Zones.  

Ribbon Cutting

Ribbon Cutting of Davis Zeller Place

On November 16 we joined Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch for the ribbon cutting of Davis Zeller Place, an affordable senior rental community comprised of two renovated historic buildings and a set of newly constructed duplexes. Two historic landmarks – the Davis Building and the Brazil Jr. High School building – have been preserved and revitalized; the new construction is located on sites identified through the Blight Elimination Program.
