The Acadiana Planning Commission (APC) is thrilled to announce the publication and release of seven new Opportunity Zone (OZ) Prospectuses as part of the InvestAcadiana Opportunity Zone Initiative.

These new community marketing tools highlight the livability and investment assets of Acadiana’s rural OZ communities. Prospectuses were developed for Abbeville, Breaux Bridge, Church Point, Eunice, New Iberia, Opelousas, and Ville Platte. These OZ Prospectuses are a product of over 20 community stakeholder meetings and include information on potential catalyst projects within each community.

The prospectus development was supported by federal funding through the Delta Regional Authority (DRA). The DRA is a federal-state partnership created by Congress to promote and encourage the economic development of the lower Mississippi River Delta region. DRA invests in projects supporting transportation infrastructure, basic public infrastructure, workforce training, and business development.
