Regional Center Program
The Regional Center Pilot Program was created by the U.S. Congress to help administer the EB-5 program.
A Regional Center is:
- An entity that has been approved by United States Citizen and Immigration Service.
- Focuses on a specific geographical area within the United States.
- Seeks to promote economic growth through increased export sales, improved regional productivity, creation of new jobs, and increased domestic capital investment.
The majority of EB-5 investments being made today are made through Regional Centers for the following reasons:
Investors have the ability to count direct and indirect jobs created by their investment using econometric models. This makes the job compliance requirement easier to fulfill.
Investors may invest in a limited partnership and not have day to day management responsibilities and may live anywhere in the U.S.A.
