  • Common incentives aimed at attracting businesses and stimulating economic growth
  • Opportunity zones as drivers of revitalization and job creation
  • Tech hubs as centers of innovation
  • National Association of REALTORS® grants that can be used by state and local REALTOR® associations to support economic development initiatives in your community
  • Details about how EDOs strategically target foreign direct investment
  • Information about how to join the USA Pavilion at MIPIM, one of the world’s leading property summits

Whether you’re looking to explore new initiatives or ideas for growth, dive in and discover how you can build collaborative partnerships with your EDO.
