Why choose EB5AN’s California EB-5 Regional Center?

Affiliating with an EB5AN EB-5 regional center will give you several benefits that will be critical to the success of your project.

1. You will be able to start raising investment funds immediately

The EB5AN State of California Regional Center already has USCIS approval. The California center, along with the other EB5AN regional centers currently approved, is listed on the USCIS website. As an added bonus, the EB5AN EB-5 regional center in California has geographic coverage of the entire state, so you can start raising funds for a project anywhere in Hayward or the surrounding areas.

This means more investment capital can be raised, as more jobs will be available. By affiliating with us, you’ll incentivize investors to contribute to your project because they’ll be able to prove they are having an impact on American jobs.

3. You’ll be able to rapidly complete the affiliation process, freeing you up to start pursuing capital

Is Hayward considered a targeted employment area?

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