Federal agencies asked to consider move into opportunity zones; Dan Gauthier, RLG transactional attorney handling many opportunity zone investments, comments

By Realtor Magazine

President Donald Trump signed an executive order this week for federal agencies to prioritize moving their offices to opportunity zones, low-income areas flagged for revitalization. The executive order could prompt some federal agencies, such as the Department of Labor and Department of Housing and Urban Development, to relocate their offices to designated census tracts under the federal opportunity zones program, The Real Deal reports.

All federal agencies will be asked to stop prioritizing city centers and central business districts when considering new offices and instead explore relocating to a designated opportunity zone.
