The EB5AN State of Texas EB-5 regional center offers significant advantages for your EB-5 project.
If you choose to rent our Texas EB-5 regional center, you can…
1. Start raising EB-5 capital for your project, quickly.
Since our Texas regional center provides services to developers anywhere in the state, no matter what part of Houston your project is in, EB5AN can empower you to raise the funds you need quickly. Every one of EB5AN’s EB-5 regional centers is USCIS approved and can be found on the USCIS website.
2. Create jobs both directly and indirectly to fulfill EB5 investment requirements.
The USCIS requires EB-5 investments to save or create 10 full-time employment positions. While EB-5 projects that are unaffiliated with a regional center can count only actual employees toward this total and are required to keep them employed for a minimum of 24 months, affiliated projects can count jobs they’ve created both directly and indirectly. Not only does this give their job creation numbers a boost, it enables project developers to fund their EB-5 projects with a higher percentage of EB-5 capital.
3. Enjoy the perks provided by our EB5AN regional center.
You can get your project off the ground successfully with the help of our knowledgeable team. To establish your project’s affiliation with our EB-5 regional center, we’ll collaborate with you to ascertain the number of EB-5 eligible jobs it can create, the targeted amount of EB-5 capital, and whether it’s eligible for affiliation with our Houston regional center.

Is your Houston EB-5 project located within a targeted employment area (TEA)?
Because targeted employment area (TEA) designation holds numerous benefits for EB-5 projects in Houston 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 Houston, 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 info@EB5AN.com. We promise to respond within 24 hours.
Houston is growing and thriving.
Hurricane Harvey couldn’t keep this city down. Houston’s Space Center, Museum District, and Waterwall Park are just a few of the sights that draw tourists. The University of Houston brings eager students from all over the country and around the globe. Houston has also welcomed the EB-5 Regional Center Program along with its accompanying economic growth and immigrant investors seeking new lives in the US.
The Space City’s counties (including Harris, Montgomery, and Fort Bend) and suburbs (including Cinco Ranch, the Woodlands, and Greatwood) fall within the purview of the EB5AN State of Texas EB-5 regional center. Developers looking for project funding in these areas will find what they need by affiliating with our USCIS-approved regional center, and EB-5 investors looking for investment opportunities will find them here.
