Why rent our regional center with coverage of Hawaii for your EB-5 project in Hilo?
When you affiliate your project with our regional center, you gain…
- Freedom to raise EB-5 capital anywhere in Hilo
Every one of EB5AN’s 15 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)-approved regional centers is listed on the USCIS website, including our Hawaii regional center. Affiliation with this regional center will allow you to raise EB-5 investment capital for your project anywhere in Hawaii, including any area of Hilo.
- An incentive for EB-5 investors to contribute funds to your project
Since the EB-5 program requirements specify a minimum of 10 full-time jobs created by each investor, projects that make fulfilling the requirement easy are more attractive to investors. EB-5 regional center projects are allowed to count direct, indirect, and induced jobs toward the requirement, unlike direct investment projects, which are only able to count direct jobs.
