National TEA Map

Instantly determine whether an address will qualify as a targeted employment area (TEA) with our free, continuously updated National TEA Map. We use the latest government-published unemployment data to confirm address eligibility for TEA status.

The map features a simple interface and allows you to export all combined census tract–level data to Microsoft Excel for use in your I-526 petition or I-924 application. Checking TEA eligibility is an important early step in determining whether your project is a good candidate for EB-5 investment, and this map enables you to confidently determine whether your project’s location qualifies.

This free tool is easy to use and allows you to confidently determine how many EB-5 investors your project can support based on estimated job creation.

Search for Regional Center Coverage in Your Area

Our EB-5 Regional Centers Database Tool allows you to immediately determine which USCIS-approved regional centers have the geographic coverage needed to sponsor your project. Simply enter the address of your project and view a list of all regional centers approved for that location. The resulting list includes contact information for the regional center and, if available, the regional center’s fees and diligence requirements.

With this time-saving tool, you can focus on determining which of the eligible regional centers best suits your needs rather than wasting time determining whether a regional center’s geographic scope even includes your project’s location.
