As noted, this is a new investment opportunity and the rules are in development so we are sharing with you our best understanding. Now is the time for communities to come together to create economic vitality in neighborhoods that have too often been forgotten. The combination of the innovative thinking of EIG and the on the ground engagement with communities of NDC can be very powerful in designing a stronger future. We stand ready to assist you.
