Opportunity Zones

Tim Scott’s signature legislation is Opportunity Zones.

Opportunity Zones are designed to ensure that PRIVATE investment is directed to economically distressed communities across the country. He wants to make sure no one is left behind and that all Americans have the opportunity to prosper.

Tim does not believe these communities need a handout, but a hand up. In just a few years, Opportunity Zones have generated $75 billion in private investment across the U.S. Tim would like to see this investment continue so that more Americans can be lifted out of poverty through investment aimed directly at where it is needed most. He is committed to defending this vital legislation so that more distressed communities can experience the benefits of economic development, job creation, and revitalization.
