(08/28/2019) - The EZCB is working with Allegheny County to promote the use of federal Opportunity Zones. This is an attractive new financial incentive for developers and investors. It is designed to spur economic development and job creation. New investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment. Opportunity Zones are designated as such by the governor. The EZCB EastShore communities are eligible for this program.
