The National Network of Opportunity.

Opportunity Zone Association of America (OZAA) is a nonprofit, national platform for industry stakeholders to connect, learn, and advocate.  By connecting local stakeholders with national resources, relationships, and discussions OZAA promotes the stability and success of the Opportunity Zone industry.


Opportunity Zone stakeholders rely on relationships to advance professional projects. OZAA helps to facilitate those connections.


The OZ system is constantly changing. OZAA provides resources, publications, and committee engagement to educate regional OZ networks.


OZs provide an opportunity for all. The OZAA network advances federal advocacy discussions for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Strengthening Communities.

Energizing Economies.

An association’s purpose and the greatest benefit it offers its members is a space to come together and argue, debate, support, cajole, discuss, share, and decide. Associations’ rosters are filled with people and companies that are part of the same industry. They share the same industry goals, but assuredly differ on how to achieve them. The association facilitates and harmonizes a common voice to deliver the industry’s message, its priorities, and its image to audiences including the media, policy makers, like-minded and differing associations, and of course new members. All the while the association weaves together its varied members to learn from each other, develop new growth opportunities, and strengthen their profession.
I am proud to be OZAA’s executive director because it is fervently striving to provide this greatest benefit. Out of the gate, OZAA is reaching out to opportunity zone funds, investors, supporters, and community beneficiaries such as economic development offices, chambers of commerce, and community non-profits.

These varied interests are all driving toward a robust opportunity zone industry and I welcome the shared information, varied perspectives, several ideas, and perhaps even heated debates to be sure it happens.

Welcome to OZAA!

– Aaron Grau, Executive Director
