By partnering with an EB-5 regional center in Illinois, you can…

1. Raise your Des Plaines EB-5 venture capital faster.

Our EB5AN Illinois regional center was approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to cover all of Illinois, including Des Plaines. That means you can feel confident launching your EB-5 venture and raising funds in this growing city.

2. Increase the number of jobs that count toward your EB-5 job creation requirement.

Regional centers aid investors in raising money for their EB-5 projects. Because investment projects at regional centers tend to create more jobs, including both direct and direction positions, a larger number of investors can meet the job creation requirement for a given venture. That means a bigger percentage of funding can come from EB-5 capital.

3. Start your project now without waiting for new regional center approval.

Find Des Plaines targeted employment areas

Because targeted employment area (TEA) designation holds numerous benefits for EB-5 projects in Des Plaines 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.
