EB-5 Regional Center with Coverage of Shreveport, Louisiana

Are you planning an EB-5 project in Shreveport, Louisiana? Affiliating with an EB-5 regional center has several benefits for you and your investors, and the EB5 Affiliate Network (EB5AN) regional center in Louisiana is authorized to cover the entire city of Shreveport, including the Downtown Riverfront, Highland-Stoner Hill, and all other neighborhoods.

Contact EB5AN to learn more about affiliating your Shreveport EB-5 project with our Louisiana regional center.

Three good reasons why you should affiliate you EB-5 project with EB5AN’s State of Louisiana EB-5 regional center.

1. You will be able to immediately start raising EB-5 investment capital anywhere in Shreveport.

Since EB5AN’s State of Louisiana Regional Center has geographic coverage of all of Louisiana, you can raise investment capital anywhere in Shreveport. EB5AN’s regional centers have been fully approved by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (UCSIS). For a complete list, visit the USCIS website.

2. Your project will have a larger job cushion and the capacity for more EB-5 capital.

One of the obstacles to successful immigration for EB-5 investors is being able to successfully meet the mandate to create 10 new full-time jobs for U.S. workers that last for at least two years. This can be difficult to do when only direct payroll employees of the new commercial enterprise can be included in that job count. Affiliating with EB5AN’s regional center in Louisiana, however, modifies the mandate so that you can also include indirect jobs in that job count. This means that your investors have a better chance at successful immigration and you can raise more EB-5 capital.

3. We’ll make the process as painless as possible.

Our team of experienced EB-5 professionals will review your project plan with you and calculate how many EB-5 eligible jobs your project will likely create as well as how much EB-5 capital you can plan on raising. We will also ensure that your project meets our criteria for affiliation and assist you with the EB-5 regional center affiliation process. And we’ll do this as quickly as possible so you can get started raising capital right away.

Are you thinking of forming your own EB-5 regional center in Shreveport? We can help you with that, too.

Is Shreveport, Louisiana, a targeted employment area (TEA)?

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