How can affiliating with the Massachusetts EB5AN regional center help your Worcester EB-5 project?

Working with EB5AN provides substantial benefits to your project.

1. Raise capital right away.

With EB5AN affiliation, your EB-5 project in Worcester can begin the process of raising EB-5 investment funds immediately from anywhere in the Worcester area, as the EB5AN regional center has geographic coverage of the entire state. The Massachusetts EB5AN regional center is approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and listed on the USCIS website.

2. Improve job creation totals.

EB-5 projects that do not affiliate with a regional center can consider only direct job creation, that is, employees on the payroll for at least 24 months. This can limit capital fundraising efforts. EB-5 projects affiliated with a regional center can use both direct and indirect jobs, boosting job creation totals significantly. This helps your project meet the EB5 investment requirement of ten jobs per EB-5 investor. With higher job creation numbers, project developers can secure more capital.

3. Speed up the application process.

The experts at EB5AN can take you swiftly through the affiliation process, enabling you to start raising EB-5 capital right away. Our team will help you figure out EB-5-eligible jobs created by your project as well as the amount of capital it can support. We’ll also list the criteria for Worcester regional center affiliation that your project meets.

Does your Worcester EB-5 project location qualify as a targeted employment area?

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