An EB-5 Regional Center is an organization, designated, licensed and regulated by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), which facilitates investment in
job-creating economic development projects by pooling capital raised under the EB-5 immigrant investor program.
Regional Centers use economic analysis models, including those developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, to demonstrate that job creation targets required by law have been achieved. For investments made through Regional Centers, at least ten direct, indirect, or induced jobs must be created.
All investment offerings made by EB-5 Regional Centers are subject to U.S. securities laws, enforced by state securities regulators and the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission.
