EB-5 Success Rings True Around the Country

Over the last year, there has been a lot of uncertainty in the EB-5 industry, but that has not stopped our members from delivering on their promise to bring much-needed capital to communities throughout the country to drive economic development and create American jobs. Sometimes lost in the other media chatter about the Program, below are some positive perspectives of the EB-5 Program that have been highlighted in local and national media over the past year. We are proud to have these organizations as members and commend the work they do to bring investment to all corners of our country through the EB-5 Program. Take a look at these articles which bring to life the important narrative of job creation, investment, and community development and revitalization.
