Choosing Your EB-5 Regional Center
What companies/project developers should consider when choosing an EB-5 Regional Center for financing a project.
While benefits of becoming an approved project under the EB-5 Program are vast, navigating the EB-5 system can often become overwhelming and time consuming. The Nevada State EB-5 Regional Center (NVEB-5) offers participating projects with many benefits not offered by typical centers throughout the country. The highly skilled, professional and friendly staff of the NVEB-5 Regional Center is principally focused on growth of both existing businesses and new business ventures through foreign capital investment.
The Nevada State EB-5 Regional Center (NVEB-5) is unique in that it is a blend of a non-profit and an approved U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) organization utilizing industry proven processes and procedures. In fact, NVEB-5 is one of only two non-profit regional centers in the country. This status provides peace of mind in knowing that the viability of the project, local job creation and return for the foreign capital investor is first and foremost.
NVEB-5 does not own or have any direct economic or other related self-interest or connection with a project. Rather, NVEB-5 is focused on providing a means for financially sound, viable and secure job creating project opportunities which fully satisfy all the requirements for investors to obtain their Green Cards through the United States EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program which is administered and overseen by USCIS.
In today’s ever changing economic landscape, participation in the NVEB-5 can be a positive option for businesses looking to secure the funding to expand or new ventures looking to start up.
Some of the many benefits of the Nevada State EB-5 Regional Center include:
1. NVEB-5 Is a non-profit organization
NVEB-5 Regional Center is one of only two non-profit EB-5 Centers in the United States. Uniquely, as a non-profit, the mission of NVEB-5 is to create viable and sustainable job creating business opportunities for the area and to reinvest revenues and profits into the region in the form of business startup funding, career skill building and business development programs.
2. USCIS Certified
In September 2010, NVEB-5 was founded through a partnership between Northern Nevada Development Authority (NNDA) and Hop & Mae Adams Foundation (HMAF). They focused on developing a solution for one of the key challenges facing economic recovery and economic diversity—the ability to secure capital funding. This was achieved in July of 2013 with certification from USCIS.
3. IIUSA ® Member
The Nevada State EB-5 Regional Center is a member of Invest In the USA (IIUSA ®), a national based not-for-profit industry trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program.
