SOCAP Goes to Washington: Improving Federal Place-Based Incentives


Have ideas on how to improve place-based investment incentives in the U.S.? Then you’re in luck – thanks to support from the Tipping Point Fund for Impact Investing, those in attendance for this working session will have the opportunity to provide input on structured policy recommendations that will be made to congressional and agency staff at a forum in D.C. this December. Come hear how national experts, capital allocators, and boots-on-the-ground practitioners alike believe that programs like the Community Reinvestment Act, New Markets Tax Credits, and Opportunity Zones could be streamlined, enhanced, or altered to better serve the needs of the communities where we work – and provide feedback on those recommendations!

Purpose and Desired Outcome

This entire session exists to collect feedback on and improve a set of major policy recommendations that will be made in December to senior officials in D.C. (who are being invited because of their ability to influence some of these policy outcomes). As a result, this event will be structured as a high-engagement, audience-driven working session, with most of its time dedicated to structured feedback activities from the audience on policy recommendations.
