Is Fort Lauderdale designated as a targeted employment area?
Because targeted employment area (TEA) designation holds numerous benefits for EB-5 projects in Fort Lauderdale 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.
If you confirm that your EB-5 regional center is located in a TEA in Fort Lauderdale, you can also use the EB5AN TEA map to instantly download a free TEA Qualification Report that shows all the data and calculations that support TEA qualification for your project location. Should you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact the EB5AN team by phone at 1-800-288-9138 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We promise to respond within 24 hours.
