Induced Jobs

These jobs can be included in the count towards the EB-5 job creation requirement when the investor makes an investment using a Regional Center. An induced job is a created employment position when project employees from the EB-5 spend their own income for goods and services within and nearby the community location of their EB-5 employment project. Employment is created when the workers spend their wages to create employment both directly and indirectly resulting from the EB-5 investment. Induced jobs are the jobs organically formed within the NCE community as a result of the NCE workers as they spend their money locally. Only a designated Regional Center investment counts for the definition of induced job creation. An example of induced jobs is when a new position is available in a supermarket nearby because of a greater number of shoppers in the store when a hotel project is begun nearby.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in December, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
