In 1993, the Clinton Administration designated impoverished Empowerment Zones and Enterprise Communities that now have expanded to 119 cities and 160 rural areas.
No matter where the location, the program’s purpose remains single minded –renewal; creating jobs and business opportunities in our nation’s most disadvantaged areas.
Substantial Tax Incentives are the Backbone of the Empowerment Zone Program.
