Zanesville wins grant to promote Opportunity Zones

The City of Zanesville teamed up with the Zanesville-Muskingum County Port Authority to apply for a grant from Opportunity Appalachia, which will “provide technical expertise to help advertise” the city’s two Opportunity Zones, the Times Recorder reports. Zanesville Mayor Don Mason credits that partnership with securing the grant designed “to help attract investment to smaller, rural areas,” according to the article. Mason said the grant “will help us strategically market the Opportunity Zones to investors who are seeking the program’s federal tax advantages,” noting it is important to the community and local schools to encourage that investment.
