What is a Regional Center

A "Regional Center" ("RC") is a special designation issued by the USCIS. The designation provides major benefits to immigrant entrepreneurs seeking residency using the EB-5 program. DCRC received the RC approval and designation in April 2008 to operate in Washington DC. View USCIS Designation Letter

The EB-5 program counts both direct and indirect jobs created by the immigrant applicant, but will only do so for immigrants that apply through a federally designated regional center. In the case of applicants who do not participate in the regional center, only direct jobs are counted. If the applicant participates with a regional center, both direct and indirect jobs are counted towards the 10 job requirement. DCRC believes one of the most important advantages of working with a designated RC is relaxed job creation requirements. The immigrant must prove he created and sustained 10 new, direct employees over a 24 month period. Under the DCRC program; however, the immigrant can satisfy residency testing by showing the 10 jobs through a combination of direct and indirect job creation.

Another RC advantage is that immigrants may pool capital thereby reducing management responsibilities while increasing job creation results.
