Organizations designated as “EB-5 Regional Centers” by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) facilitate the EB-5 investment process. Specifically, Regional Centers enable foreigners to invest money into projects which create at least 10 full-time U.S. jobs per investor. Regional Centers reduce certain hurdles in investment projects meeting the rigorous EB-5 job requirements. EB-5 capital from various foreign investors is pooled by Regional Center entities and then invested in economic development projects meeting USCIS’ strict regulations. Currently, Regional Centers are responsible for about 95% of all EB-5 capital invested in the U.S. economy.
