Congress created the EB-5 Program (the “Program”) in 1990 to benefit the U.S. economy by attracting investments from qualified foreign investors.
In 1992, Congress enhanced the economic impact of the EB-5 program by permitting the designation of Regional Centers to pool EB-5 capital from multiple foreign investors for investment in economic development projects approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) within a defined geographic region. Today, 95% of all EB-5 capital is raised and invested by Regional Centers.

EB-5 investments have filled the funding gap, providing a new, vital source of capital for local economic development projects that revitalize communities, create and support jobs, infrastructure and services.
