What can your EB-5 project gain by renting our EB5AN regional center in Richmond Hill?

By affiliating your EB-5 project with our EB-5 regional center, you avail yourself of several outstanding benefits.

1. You can begin raising EB-5 investment capital for your project right away

As our New York EB-5 regional center has coverage of the entire state of New York, every area of Richmond Hill is also included in its coverage. This means our affiliates have access to EB-5 investment capital no matter where in Richmond Hill their projects are located. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has approved all of EB5AN’s regional centers. Our New York EB-5 regional center, as well as the others, are listed on the USCIS website.

2. You can include indirectly created jobs in your final numbers

While direct investment projects are limited to counting only directly created positions that last for 24 months or more, job creation figures for regional center projects are based on a broader view of their economic impact. When you include those indirectly created employment opportunities, your project boasts higher employment numbers. This makes investors more interested in funding your project, since they can more confidently meet EB-5 program requirements around job creation.

3. You can streamline the capital-raising process for your Richmond Hill EB-5 project

The professionals at our Richmond Hill EB-5 regional center can expedite the regional center affiliation process so you can start raising EB-5 capital rather than paying substantial fees and waiting months for USCIS approval of your own regional center. We’ll partner with you to assess your project’s job creation potential and whether it’s a good fit for EB-5 capital. When the affiliation process is complete, you can immediately begin raising EB-5 capital.

Are there targeted employment areas in Richmond Hill?

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

The area is sometimes known as “Little Punjab” for its large Punjabi population. Like much of Queens, Richmond Hill is a place where people of similar ethnic subcultures have gathered for common experiences and solidarity, starting businesses, restaurants, and schools to keep their language, traditions, and culture alive.
