Affiliating your EB-5 project with the EB5AN State of California EB-5 Regional Center gives you several advantages

1. You will be able to start raising EB-5 capital immediately, anywhere in Milpitas

Since EB5AN’s State of California Regional Center has geographic coverage of all of California, you can begin raising your EB-5 capital anywhere in Milpitas as soon as your affiliation is complete. EB5AN currently has numerous Immigrant Investor Regional Centers throughout the country, all of which have been approved by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). A complete list appears on the USCIS website..

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 ten 24-month full-time jobs for U.S. workers through their 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 EB-5 investment capital. If you don’t affiliate your project with a USCIS-approved regional center, you can only include direct employees of the new enterprise in your job total.

3. You can start raising EB-5 capital sooner

If time is of the essence, our team of EB-5 experts will help you completely the regional center affiliation process so you can get started right away. We can help you figure out how many eligible jobs your project is projected to create, how much EB-5 capital your project can reasonably handle, and if your project plan is consistent with EB5AN’s affiliation criteria.

Is your EB-5 project in a targeted employment area?

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

Milpitas has a population of about 77,000 people and remains one of the more densely populated areas of California, given its location in the prized Bay Area. With a median household income of $99,000 per year, Milpitas is a wealthier area, but a large income gap creates disparity between the haves and have nots, and the city could still benefit from outside development projects.

Milpitas fully supports the EB-5 Regional Center Program as a way for investors to legally migrate to the United States while boosting the U.S. economy at the same time. Milpitas’ prime location makes it an ideal placement for your EB-5 project. Affiliating your project with EB5AN would create full-time jobs for this community, reducing the unemployment rate and benefitting the residents of Milpitas and surrounding areas.
