A Targeted Employment Area (TEA) is an area that is subjected to a decrease in the amount of money invested by EB-5 investors. TEA are locations with high unemployment rates (at least 150% of the national average) or are rural areas (a population of less than 20,000 and outside of a metropolitan area). If a business is located in such areas, EB-5 investors may qualify to invest only $900,000 rather than the usual $1.8m. TEA are often considered as a prime target area for EB-5 investments.
