What is an EB-5 Regional Center?

An EB-5 Regional Center is an entity designated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to promote economic growth by sponsoring projects to raise EB-5 investment.

There are currently hundreds of approved regional centers, each designated to sponsor projects within a specific geographic area in the United States. USCIS designates a regional center based on an application that explains how the regional center will promote economic growth in its area. To ensure that a designated regional center remains eligible, USCIS reviews its annual reports to verify that it has continued to comply with all applicable laws and authorities.

Over 90% of EB-5 visas issued over the past decade have been for applicants who invested through the regional center program. Learn more about the "Benefits of Working with an EB-5 Regional Center".

Denver, the largest city in Colorado is one of the hotspots for new construction with the whole skyline changing due to new skyscrapers being built. Many projects currently underway are multifamily (apartment or condo buildings) to fulfill the need for housing due to population growth. Texas had the most substantial construction growth of all states in 2018 at 10% due to a trend of people and businesses moving south, and the powerful Texas business climate, attracting companies to the region and stimulating on-shore manufacturing. Oklahoma leads the list of top 10 cities posed for construction growth in 2018. Tulsa, Oklahoma currently ranks among the top metro areas in the U.S. for construction job growth, boosted by the emerging oil and gas industry, as well as growth in the healthcare and hospitality sectors.


Colorado is located in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States, with some of the most varied landscapes in the world; red rock formations, prairie grasslands, serene lakes and forests, an abundance of wildflowers, and some of the highest sand dunes in North America. One of the major attractions for people is the seasonal climate. Colorado receives around 300 days of sunshine, making it the perfect place to visit all year round, and during winter sees more than 300 inches of snow at mountain resorts.

Oklahoma and Texas have dry, crisp climate along with scenic landscapes that have been beneficial to businesses catering to tourists and health seekers, and has become a popular retirement area. Oklahoma is a fascinating mixture of Western history and Native American culture, set amongst rugged mountains, abundant wildlife and the famous expansive Great Plains. Texas is the second largest U.S. state (Alaska being first) with deserts, deep canyons, pine forest, 600 miles of sandy shoreline, and the Rio Grande, a river that forms its border with Mexico.
