Rural Foreign Direct Investment

From manufacturing to farming, freight logistics to energy production and more, rural America is home to many of the nation’s most critical infrastructure assets including 444,000 bridges, 2.98 million miles of roadways and 30,500 miles of interstate highways. These communities create opportunities for many foreign investors to gain entry into US markets, by way of an EB-5 project within a targeted employment area (TEA).

Getting an EB-5 project a targeted employment area (TEA) designation can be incredibly important. As labeled by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, TEA rural areas must not be within a metropolitan statistical area, nor on the outskirts of a town or city that has a population of 20,000 residents or more as determined through the U.S. Census. If the project location is a rural area at the time of the EB-5 investment, then it may be designated as a TEA. The required investment amount is lowered from $1 million to $500,000 dollars if the EB-5 project is conducted in a TEA.
