ABOUT

The Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone (ECOZ) consists of a diverse group of geographical census tracts intended to make the Olympic Coast more attractive to investors. Working together, ECOZ is catalyzing economic development in rural areas by engaging with communities and connecting the best opportunities with private capital.

EMERALD COAST: Strength through collaboration

Miles of ocean coastline, lush forests and breathtaking mountains. Waterfront villages that blend history with modern manufacturing, farms and artisan craftsmen. People with a strong work ethic and deep cultural roots.
This is the Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone -- a unique collaboration of five Tribal Nations, four cities, two counties and two port authorities that spans 14 federally designated Opportunity Zone census tracts.
Together, the partners of the Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone are building a deal "engine" of community driven projects that both present good investments but also create good jobs, construct affordable and high-end housing, and support innovative entrepreneurs.
The Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone is the right place for investors who measure returns not just in dollars, but also in local jobs and wealth created, people housed, and healthier environments. We look forward to working with you.
