The U.S. Treasury Department has approved Montana's 25 Opportunity Zones as nominated by Governor Steve Bullock. 

In April 2018, Bullock nominated 25 areas of Montana for designation as an Opportunity Zone, after communities submitted proposals for consideration.

With the help of Prospera, the City of Bozeman was selected for an Opportunity Zone in May 2018. The Zone is a designated census tract south of Bozeman (along 19th/MSU) that is designed to provide tax benefits to investors. These Zones are new creations in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and will act as an incentive for infill development.
