We are pleased that the Continuing Resolution passed by Congress yesterday includes a temporary extension of the EB-5 Regional Center Program. This extension allows the program to continue generating foreign direct investment and creating U.S. jobs through December 11, 2015.
In addition to extending the current program to December 11, this will also provide additional time for Congress to consider a long-term reauthorization bill that would include reform measures to strengthen federal oversight and the integrity of the program. Members of Congress from both parties and both the House and Senate are negotiating in good faith.
This week, two Senate bills were introduced that propose revisions to the EB-5 program.
Last week, our team closed $350 million in EB-5 financing for our developer clients. We have sourced more than $700 million in EB-5 financing for developer clients and believe the EB-5 program will continue to be an important source of funding for qualified projects.
We will continue to report on EB-5 developments as they unfold. CONTINUE READING →
