EB-5 and P3: Advantages of Alignment – March 8, 2016, 3:30pm-4:45pm est
In recent years, the U.S. immigrant investor program – known as the “EB-5 Program” – has emerged as a flexible financing source that is used in diverse economic development projects all around the country to boost local economies, improve communities, and create American jobs – and quite often in a P3 model. In FY2013 alone, the EB-5 Program accounted for over $3.5 billion in GDP, supported over 41,000 U.S. jobs, and generated over $800 million in federal/state/local tax revenue – all at no cost to the American taxpayer. Knowing the various cross-sector interests involved in EB-5 in a P3 model is essential to being successful and using the P3 structure as an advantage. P3 models in EB-5 vary, but involve various layers of interests, from the Regional Center and immigrant investor, to the public entities involved, to the developer, all the way down to the community the project will serve. It is essential that these interests are properly aligned to ensure EB-5 capital is being deployed into projects that not only meet the requirements of the Program, but also the needs of the communities where the investment is taking place. During this session, attendees will hear from leading industry experts with proven success in the applying P3 models to EB-5 and learn how EB-5 financing and a P3 relationship contribute to the necessary alignment of interests to be successful in utilizing the EB-5 Program to improve or revitalize your community.
