In December 2017, legislation authored by U.S. Senators Cory A. Booker (D-NJ) and Tim Scott (R-SC) was passed into law after being incorporated into the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The Opportunity Zones Program is designed to spur economic development and job creation in designated Opportunity Zones.

Opportunity Zones are low-income census tracts nominated by governors and certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury allowing investors to direct capital into new projects and enterprises in exchange for certain federal capital gains tax advantages.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy worked directly with U.S. Senator Cory Booker’s office, convened meetings and round tables with mayors throughout the State to receive feedback and input, and met with the New Jersey Congressional delegation to ensure a fair and transparent selection process. New Jersey Opportunity Zones are located in 75 municipalities, representing every county. The Opportunity Zone initiative will be housed at the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.
