Immigration lawyer Ron Klasko cites three regional center routes for developers who want to raise EB-5 capital. The developer can form its own regional center — though this may defer capital raising for several years. A developer can work with an eligible existing regional center; due diligence, is key here, Klasko advises. And a developer may purchase a previously approved regional center that has filed an I-956; this requires an amendment regarding ownership and principals, but the project can raise capital upon the amendment’s filing and does not have to wait for approval.
