USCIS Idea Community to Facilitate Further Discussion on Recent EB-5 Stakeholder Engagement
Last week, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it has set up an online portal, called the USCIS Idea Community, for EB-5 Stakeholders to submit comments or questions, provide feedback, and continue the discussion from the February 26th EB-5 Interactive Series Engagement on Requests for Evidence on Lawful Source of Funds (listen here). As of March 6th, there have been 60+ comments submitted. The Idea Community will be active through March 13th.
Last year, USCIS set up its Idea Community for EB-5 Stakeholder comment after the April 23, 2014 EB-5 Stakeholder Engagement and to solicit input on potential regulatory changes to the EB-5 Program.
