Why choose EB5AN as your regional center affiliate?

Partnering with our EB-5 regional center for your Reno-based EB-5 projects gives you several advantages.

1. You will be able to immediately raise EB-5 capital for your project anywhere in Reno.

Since EB5AN’s State of Nevada Regional Center has authorized geographical coverage of the entire state of Nevada, you can begin raising EB-5 investment funds anywhere in Reno or surrounding areas as soon as you are ready. EB5AN owns and operates numerous EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Centers, all of which have USCIS approval.

2. You can include indirect jobs in the total job count.

The EB-5 program requires projects to create 10 new full-time jobs for U.S. workers per immigrant investor. This can be difficult to achieve when only direct employees can be counted, as is the case with projects that do not use an approved regional center as an intermediary. Affiliating with one of EB5AN’s regional centers means that indirect jobs can be counted as well toward the 10-job requirement. This allows for a higher amount of EB-5 capital as funding for a given project.

3. Complete the affiliation process quickly and begin raising EB-5 capital.

Affiliation with EB5AN’s State of Nevada regional center will allow you to start raising your EB-5 capital sooner rather than later. We can help you determine the number of jobs your project will create and how much EB-5 capital you should be trying to raise based on that job count. We can also ensure that your project meets affiliation criteria, and we can help you with the regional center affiliation process itself.

It takes us only three weeks to complete your I-924 application.

Perhaps you’d prefer to form your own EB-5 regional center instead of affiliating with an existing one. We can guide you through that process, too. The I-924 application for regional center approval has many components, which can be confusing without the proper background and knowledge. Our experts can help you accurately complete your I-924 application and ensure that you have included all needed documentation to successfully complete the adjudication process. EB5AN has already successfully completed more than 300 USCIS-compliant business plans and economic impact studies, and EB5AN regional centers have geographical coverage of more than 20 states.

Please contact us at your earliest convenience so we can help you with your EB-5 regional center approval process. We will respond to your inquiry within 24 hours.

How do I find out if my project location is in a targeted employment area?

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

Reno may not be as densely populated as some other areas in the United States, but its population of 245,255 makes it a fairly large city susceptible to high rates of unemployment. You can help reduce unemployment rates by affiliating with EB5AN for your upcoming EB-5 project in Reno to create multiple new full-time jobs for Reno residents.

Affiliating with a USCIS-approved EB5AN regional center or getting our assistance in forming your own EB-5 regional center may be the easiest decision you ever make.
