Qualified opportunity funds (QOFs) tracked by Novogradac reported an increase of more than $1 billion in investment since the end of 2020. QOFs tracked by Novogradac reported an equity raise of $16.34 billion for investment in opportunity zones (OZs) as of April 12, up from $15.16 billion reported at the end of 2020. Novogradac is now tracking 1,002 QOFs, of which 708 reported a dollar amount of equity raised. A blogpost by Michael Novogradac looks deeper at the most recent data, including the average equity raise and the types of investment that are most common.

The updated QOF investment figures, as well as discussions of the state of the OZ incentive, the OZ marketplace and more will be the focus at the Novogradac 2021 Spring Opportunity Zones Virtual Conference, Thursday and Friday. Registration is still open.
