In the wake of their April 23rd Public Engagement on the EB-5 Program (listen here or read a summary here), USCIS has unveiled the USCIS Idea Community, an online platform to solicit ideas and opinions from EB-5 stakeholders on the future of the Program. Below is an e-mail sent to stakeholders from the USCIS Public Engagement Division.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is using a new online tool, called the USCIS Idea Community, to ask for your ideas and opinions on the services that we provide. We would like to thank those who have already joined the Idea Community and shared their thoughts.
On April 23, we hosted a national stakeholder engagement for the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. Our next idea campaign focuses on the future of the Program and potential regulatory changes. Starting today, and active through May 8, you can visit the Idea Community to provide your ideas and feedback on this topic.
We welcome your input on potential changes that could be made to the EB-5 regulations and guidance to clarify eligibility requirements and to improve the program’s integrity, efficiency, predictability and consistency.
Please note that we are only seeking individual input. We are not seeking group or consensus advice.
Please share your thoughts with us!
We encourage you to participate in the USCIS Idea Community. All you need is an active email address. You’ll be able to create your own custom profile, comment on existing ideas, vote on ideas, or submit your own idea.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll see you online in the USCIS Idea Community!
