In 1992, the U.S. Congress created the Regional Center Pilot Program to promote immigration and investment through the EB-5 program and also encourage foreign investment in the United States. The Regional Center Pilot Program allows for a portion of allowable annual EB-5 Visas to be set aside for foreigners who apply through a USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) approved Regional Center.

A Regional Center is a private commercial enterprise, corporation, or regional governmental agency with a targeted investment program within a defined geographic region. In many ways, the Regional Center program mirrors other successful, long-standing investment-employment based programs in the UK, Canada, Australia, and other countries.

An investor seeking an EB-5 immigrant visa through a designated regional center must make a qualifying investment of $1 million and show that at least 10 jobs were directly or indirectly created through that investment.

However, certain rural and high unemployment areas (TEAs – Targeted Employment Areas) qualify for a reduced capital investment of $500,000. A targeted employment area is an area that has 1.5 times the national unemployment rate or a population under 20,000.

Houston EB5 is a USCIS-designed regional center that focuses primarily on investment opportunities for qualified immigrants located within targeted employment areas.

Using USCIS-approved job creation methodology, Houston EB5 develops and maintains detailed economic reports to measure and verify direct and indirect job creation for qualified EB-5 projects.
