Designations and Maps
- Basic Info
If an area meets the criteria for an Opportunity Zone designation and the community files the necessary detail to support the designation request with DCA, then the area is designated as an Opportunity Zone. The designated areas do not include an entire jurisdiction, but rather the area or areas within the jurisdiction that meet the criteria for such designation. The map detail below will assist in locating the boundaries specific to the designated Opportunity Zones. If additional assistance is needed, there is a local contact within each designated area to assist in determining if a location is within the boundaries of the designated Opportunity Zone. The listing of local contacts is included below.
The listing of current Opportunity Zone designations in the Awards Section below includes the designation period applicable to each designation. The designation period is applicable to the first tax year that begins on or after January 1st of the initial year and ends in the tax year that begins on or after January 1st of the last year. For example, a designation period of 2011 through 2021 would be applicable to eligible net new jobs created during the period which starts with the 2011 tax year beginning on or after January 1, 2011 and which ends with the 2021 tax year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. Eligible net new jobs for the Job Tax Credit Program could be created during this designation period.
