ED/OESE RIN: 1810-AB38 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: Empowerment Zone/Enterprise Community--Priority 

The Department will rescind the regulations establishing the priority for activities in an Empowerment Zone or Enterprise Community. The Department will take this action because the initiative has closed, and the last Congressional extension of tax benefits to Empowerment Zones ended in 2016. These regulations are outdated and unlikely to be used again.
