2. You can use indirect jobs to meet the 10-job requirement for each investor.

The EB-5 program regulations mandate that each EB-5 investor create at least 10 new fulltime jobs for U.S. workers through their EB-5 investment. Affiliating your project with one of our approved regional centers means that you can include indirect jobs along with direct employees in that total, giving you a higher job count and allowing you to raise a substantially greater amount of investor capital. If you don’t affiliate your project with a USCIS-approved regional center, you can include only direct employees of the new enterprise in your job total.

Is my EB-5 project in a targeted employment area (TEA)?

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