Join the Urban Institute and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) for a discussion about how changes enacted through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 could affect the resources available to families and communities seeking to bridge the opportunity gap. We will explore

  • the short-term and long-term impacts on family incomes and on the behavior of small and large businesses with respect to investing in their workforce;
  • the legislation’s impact on the ability of investors, municipalities, and nonprofits to provide resources to revitalize neighborhoods and help families escape poverty; and
  • the prospects of the new “Opportunity Zones” tax incentive for investing in low-income communities.

  • Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (AL-7)
