CalOZ: Republican Or Democrat, The Opportunity Zone Program Will Likely Change Next Administration

A new group led by the Crenshaw Subway Coalition is raising funds to buy the mall in what CSC Executive Director Damien Goodmon said could be an all-too-rare example of the opportunity zone program being used for its stated purpose of benefiting underserved communities.


“There’s a real need for reform or repeal given that its current implementation has been disadvantageous for communities of color," Goodmon said. "It’s actually made it worse.”

Goodmon said a much better alternative to the current opportunity zone program would be one in which community wealth is built and maintained through projects.
