The EB-5 visa program has become a major source of real estate financing nationwide, and in particular for large real estate development projects in New York City such as Hudson Yards in Manhattan, the New York Wheel on Staten Island, and the Pacific Park development in Brooklyn. The EB-5 program provides lawful permanent residence status to immigrants in exchange for an investment of at least $500,000 in a U.S. business venture that creates at least ten permanent jobs. While the real estate industry has to date been the primary beneficiary of investment dollars generated by the EB-5 program, proposed changes to the program’s rules could imperil what has been a reliable source of funding for new development projects.1 With the primary component of EB-5 expiring in September, many stakeholders expect at least some structural changes to be adopted by Congress as part of any effort to reauthorize the program under the Trump administration.
