Benefits of renting an EB5AN regional center

Renting our Illinois EB-5 regional center supports your project in three main areas.

1. You can establish an EB-5 project anywhere in the area.

The EB5AN regional center covers the entire state of Illinois. This allows our affiliates to develop EB-5 projects in any area of Hoffman Estates, including its suburbs. EB5AN operates numerous regional centers approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and listed on the USCIS website.

2. Your EB5 project may meet program requirements more easily through affiliation.

When calculating a number for job creation requirement totals, unaffiliated projects may count only direct employment positions lasting more than two years. Regional center projects, which allow investors to count indirect jobs, result in higher job creation numbers, so they tend to be much more attractive to investors. This allows developers to easily gather more EB-5 capital for their projects.

3. You can focus on raising EB-5 capital and leave the logistics to EB5AN.

USCIS compliance is a simple process when you rely on EB5AN’s expertise. We can expedite the EB-5 regional center affiliation process, including calculating your project’s potential to support EB-5 capital and create jobs as well as its suitability for affiliation with our Hoffman Estates regional center. Once that’s done, you can raise the EB-5 capital you need.

Are there targeted employment areas in Hoffman Estates?

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

Hoffman Estates has an eye on the future

Referring to itself as a “village,” Hoffman Estates is a quiet town with a smattering of historic locations. It was a refuge from the metropolitan atmosphere of Chicago for many corporations, and during the 1990s the Prairie Stone Business Park, which is still under construction, became the new Sears headquarters. The ongoing construction of the Business Park invites many opportunities for economic development; future plans for the park include more restaurants, hotels, railway transportation options, and other amenities necessary for a business hub.

Sears Holding Corporation, AT&T, GE Capital, and St. Alexius, the community hospital, are the largest employers in the area. Many Japanese corporations, including Mori Seiki, keep their headquarters in Hoffman Estates or Schaumburg.
