The Benefits of Affiliating with EB5AN’s New York Regional Center

Why choose affiliation with our EB-5 regional center over heading out on your own?

1. Affiliation with EB5AN will give you faster access to needed capital.

EB5AN is a reputable, national consulting firm with numerous regional centers throughout the U.S. All our centers are approved by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and appear on its list of approved regional centers. Since our New York EB-5 regional center has a geographic coverage area that includes the entire state of New York, you can start raising EB-5 investment capital for your New York City EB-5 project right away, regardless of where in the city your project is located.

2. Projects that are affiliated with a regional center can include indirect jobs in their total job creation count.

One of the major disadvantages of unaffiliated EB-5 projects is that only direct employees can be included when counting newly created jobs. Affiliation with a regional center adds the option of including indirect jobs, which makes it easier to meet the job-creation requirements and allows for higher amounts of EB-5 capital.

3. You can get the needed expertise and assistance to launch your project quickly.

If you’re in a hurry to get your project started, our team members have the experience necessary to rapidly guide you through the EB-5 regional center affiliation process. We can look over your project details to get an idea of the number of eligible jobs your project will create, the amount of EB5 investment capital it can handle, and whether it is eligible to affiliate with our regional center.

Is New York City considered a targeted employment area (TEA)?

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