TARGETED EMPLOYMENT AREAS
Bringing Investment and Opportunity to American Communities
The majority of EB-5 investments are directed towards targeted employment areas (TEAs): rural or high-unemployment communities that welcome new capital investment intended to strengthen the economic viability and vitality of their community and region.
Below, we offer a number of useful resources to share information, news, and research related to TEA.
TEA Mapping Tool
This mapping tool considers the revised Targeted Employment Area (TEA) criteria in the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 to identify whether a census track is in a TEA. The tool also provides in-depth data about each census track including unemployment data and geography data. IIUSA is committed to providing accurate information and assuring its data integrity. However, as with any online tool, we are unable to provide absolute assurances. For example, project addresses not recognized by Google Maps may not accurately geolocate on this mapping tool. IIUSA is proud to share this resource, but encourages users to exercise complete due diligence and not rely solely on one resource before making any business decision.
Supporting this Mapping Tool
Since IIUSA launched the first version of the EB-5 TEA mapping tool in December 2020, it attracted an average of 1,520 monthly pageviews from more than 1,900 individual users. You can sponsor this valuable resource to support IIUSA and showcase your company’s leadership in this field.
