Benefits of linking your EB-5 project in Orlando to the EB5AN State of Florida EB-5 regional center

You should affiliate with our EB-5 regional center for three key reasons.

1. Generate new EB-5 capital for your Orlando project right away.

By joining the EB5 Affiliate Network, your EB-5 project will be able to immediately seek new EB-5 investment funds anywhere in the Orlando area, as the entire state of Florida is covered by the EB5AN State of Florida regional center. EB5AN owns numerous EB-5 regional centers, all of which are approved by USCIS and listed on the USCIS website.

2. Fulfill the EB-5 investment requirement of 10 jobs per EB-5 investor through indirect job creation.

Affiliating with any of our regional centers allows you to use indirect and direct job creation numbers—nonaffiliates can use only actual employees that have been on the job at least two years. Therefore, EB-5 projects can generate higher job creation figures, which help project developers raise substantially more EB-5 capital.

3. Start your pursuit of EB5 investment capital immediately after affiliating with an EB5AN State of Florida regional center.

If you are seeking EB-5 capital for your Orlando project immediately, we can take you through the EB-5 regional center affiliation process expeditiously. We can help you determine

Qualified targeted employment areas in Orlando

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