How can affiliation with the EB5AN’s State of Georgia EB-5 regional center enhance the performance of your EB-5 project in Columbus?

There are many reasons to affiliate with an EB5AN EB-5 regional center. Here are just a few.

1. You can begin the process of EB-5 capital raising sooner.

Naturally, you want to start gathering capital for your EB-5 project in Columbus as soon as possible. The quickest way to do so is to affiliate with the EB5AN regional center. We’ll allow you to instantly commence capital-raising activities anywhere in the city of Columbus because our regional center covers the entire state of Georgia. Additionally, why not take a look at the Immigrant Investor Regional Centers for which U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has awarded us official approval?

2. You can leverage indirect job creation to more easily fulfill EB-5 investor requirements.

Your EB-5 project must satisfy the EB-5 investment requirement of creating 10 new jobs. Meeting this criterion is far easier if you’re affiliated with an EB5AN regional center because affiliation allows you to count both direct and indirect job creation. Naturally, counting indirect job creation will lead to larger figures and, ultimately, more capital for your project. On the other hand, non-affiliates are left scrambling to directly create 10 new jobs for each EB5 investment, able to count only payroll employees who have been employed for at least two years.

3. You can complete the affiliation process quickly and painlessly with our assistance.

Don’t let bureaucratic issues delay you from gathering EB-5 capital for your Columbus project. Our highly experienced team can aid you in the application process, allowing you to start raising capital even sooner. Once we determine the eligibility of your project for affiliation with our regional center, we’ll consult with you to ascertain the level of job creation and capital support your project will entail.

Which parts of Columbus count as targeted employment areas?

Because targeted employment area (TEA) designation holds numerous benefits for EB-5 projects in Columbus and other cities, it is important to understand both the benefits of and the USCIS process for TEA designation. To determine whether your EB-5 project location falls within a TEA, please consult our free EB-5 TEA map, which includes data for the entire United States. All you need to do is to enter the project address—the rest of the process is automated.

The EB5AN TEA map relies on the most recently published versions of two data sets, namely American Community Survey (ACS) five-year data and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data. It assesses TEA eligibility based on four calculation methodologies USCIS accepts—three related to calculating unemployment rates and one related to qualification as a rural TEA. Unemployment rates are calculated using (1) American Community Survey (ACS) five-year unemployment data by census tract, (2) the census-share methodology, which is based on a combination of ACS data and county-level BLS data, and (3) BLS county-level data for TEA determination on a county-wide level. To determine rural qualification, population and geographical data are considered. To qualify as a TEA, a project site needs to qualify under only one calculation method.

A TEA can also be created by combining directly adjacent census tracts and considering the weighted average unemployment rate. The EB5AN TEA map performs this function automatically.
