Erie Homecoming - Aug 19-20, 2019

Accelerator for America is proud to partner with the Erie Regional Chamber & Growth Partnership to present Erie Homecoming 2019. The event will feature discussions and workshops led by the Accelerator and presentations from Accelerator CEO Rick Jacobs as well as Partner and policy expert Bruce Katz. 

Erie has been an early mover in harnessing Opportunity Zones to bring inclusive investment to its underserved communities. The Accelerator worked with Erie Mayor Joe Schember to develop the city's Investment Prospectus and the Erie Downtown Development Corporation was featured at the Accelerator's national Opportunity Zone Investor Summit earlier this year.
