One of the conditions for applying to the EB-5 program is that you’ll create ten full-time jobs for American workers. The good news is that by going through a regional center, your investment can create these jobs either directly or indirectly.
Indirect job creation can include those held by employees of project as well as employees of producers of materials, equipment, or services used by the project. In addition, a sub-set of indirect jobs, known as induced jobs, are created when the new direct and indirect employees spend their earnings on consumer goods and services
Another question to ask is how many investors the regional center has and how job creation is allocated among the individual investors. This is important to understand if there is a shortfall of job creation that is insufficient to meet each investor’s requirements. You should always ask what the regional center’s plan is if something goes wrong with the project.
