CalOZ is dedicated to maximizing the transformative potential of Opportunity Zones (OZs) in California.
State Policy Adoption
CalOZ is building a cross-sector, multidisciplinary working group in collaboration with California Forward and the California Business Roundtable to support the adoption of leading OZ policy concepts into state legislation and regulation. Guided by a “triple bottom line mindset,” CalOZ will pursue policy solutions focused in three areas: competitiveness, equity, and sustainability.
CalOZ will also focus on building infrastructure and capacity at the local level to support the growth of the nascent OZ marketplace, including a new OZ Fellowship program developed in collaboration with Accelerator for America and FUSE Corps. Preliminary plans call for the recruiting, training, and deployment of talented professionals within OZs to help identify and prepare prospective projects for OZ Fund investment.
