Why choose EB5AN’s Oregon EB-5 regional center?

Becoming a business affiliate of EB5AN will give you several benefits that will be critical to the success of your project.

EB5AN’s EB-5 regional center in Oregon already has USCIS approval, like all EB5AN regional centers. As an added bonus, the EB5AN EB-5 regional center in Oregon has geographic coverage of the entire state, so you can start raising funds anywhere in Salem or surrounding areas.

This means more investment capital can be raised since there will be more jobs available, and your investors will be more likely to successfully complete the immigration process.

3. You will be able to complete the affiliation process quickly and easily.

Our team is experienced with a range of EB-5 projects and situations and can assist you in rapidly completing your regional center affiliation and starting your project. We will help you figure out how many jobs your project has the potential to create, how much EB-5 capital you can reasonably raise, and if your project is suitable for affiliation with our regional center in Salem, Oregon.

Is Salem considered a targeted employment area?

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