EB-5 Program

Category: Federal Incentives, Financing Assistance


This program provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the U.S. To qualify, individuals must invest $1,000,000 or at least $500,000 in a 'Targeted Employment Area" (high unemployment or rural area) creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers excluding the investor and immediate family. Foreign investments can be made directly in a job-generating commercial enterprise or into a "regional center" - a 3rd party-managed investment vehicle, which assumes the responsibility of creating the required jobs.
