Affiliating with an EB-5 regional center holds benefits for developers and investors alike.

1. The ability to instantly start raising capital for your EB-5 project

With state-wide coverage in the busy state of New York, EB5AN enables affiliated EB-5 projects located in Buffalo to commence the accumulation of capital instantly—anywhere within the city. The EB5AN New York regional center is USCIS approved, just like all other regional centers in the EB5AN network.

The requirement itself doesn’t change—you still need to create 10 new jobs. However, affiliating with a regional center significantly facilitates the process of fulfilling this condition. Unlike non-affiliates, which depend solely on payroll employees, affiliated EB-5 projects can count direct and indirect job creation, naturally generating higher figures. Ultimately, this means you’ll be able to raise even more capital for your EB-5 project.

What’s a targeted employment area, and does your Buffalo EB-5 regional center fall into one?

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