The U.S. Congress passes the Continuing Resolution to fund the Federal Government through December 20thNovember 22, 2019

Today, President Trump signed the Continuing Resolution that will fund the federal government through December 20, 2019. The continuing resolution also extends the EB-5 regional center program which means EB-5 petitioners can still invest into an EB-5 project and file their I-526 petition over the next 29 days.

This extension coincides with the first day of the new EB-5 Immigration Investor Program Modernization Regulations, which went into effect today. The new EB-5 regulations have increased the minimum investment amount to $900,000 if the project is located in a targeted employment area (TEA) and $1.8 million if not located in a TEA. Additionally, the new regulations include integrity measures in the form of stricter TEA requirements and the designating authority will now be the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), as opposed to at the individual State level which led to inherent conflicts of interest.  This means it will make it harder for projects to qualify in affluent metropolitan areas like Manhattan or Miami. .

CMB Regional Centers (CMB), with over 20 years of experience in the EB-5 industry and an experienced staff of over 40 in-house professionals, has been working diligently to have regulation compliant EB-5 projects available in the near future that will comply with the new EB-5 regulations.
