On October 15th, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta highlighted the EB-5 Program on its Real Estate Research blog, discussing the mechanics of the Program and citing the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) report Increasing Economic Opportunity In Distressed Urban Communities With EB-5. The next post from the Atlanta Fed on EB-5 will address the program’s impacts in the southeastern region.
In September, IIUSA Executive Director Peter D. Joseph moderated an EB-5 seminar hosted by Federal Reserve Bank of New York in Syracuse, NY. The one-day event presented an overview of the EB-5 program, discussed typical EB-5 deal structures and EB-5 visa availability as well as examples of successful projects in New York state.
In fact, on Saturday November 18th, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York held a second EB-5 Forum, this time in Rochester, NY.
