EB-5: The Basics

Congress in 1990 created the EB-5 foreign investment program to help stimulate the US economy through capital investments that would create US based jobs. Since then the program has been reauthorized which has allowed thousands of foreign investors to secure their green cards while creating thousands of US jobs. The premise of this program is for the investor to invest in a new commercial enterprise. This can be a business or real estate.

Each investor must invest a minimum of $1,000,000 or as low as $500,000 in approved TEA areas. Targeted Employment Area (TEA)s are defined as areas experiencing unemployment of at least 150% the national average rate. $500,000 investment levels can also be considered for rural areas outside of major MSA's or outside the boundary of any city or town having a population of 20,000 or more based on the decennial census. Each investor/investment must create or preserve at least 10 full jobs within two years. How those jobs are counted will be based on direct jobs (jobs identified at the exact location of the investment) or indirect jobs (created at the actual location OR collaterally as a result of the investment through and affiliated with an approved "Regional Center").

Structures

Rates can start from 4% depending on the project, 0-1 points, limited recourse and no real limit on how much can be raised (based on the number of jobs created). The larger the amount needed, the longer the raise period but we can secure Bridge financing to help the project during the raise period. EB-5 financing can come in the form of:

  • First position mortgages
  • Second position mezzanine mortgage secured by real estate
  • Mezzanine loan secured by the ownership entity
  • Limited Partner Equity
  • .
