Founded in 2005, Invest In the USA (IIUSA) is the national membership-based 501(c)(6) not-for-profit industry trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program (the “Program”). IIUSA’s primary mission is to make the Program a permanent and successful part of 21st century U.S. economic development policy. Federally-designated, active EB-5 Regional Centers – the public and/or private entities approved to serve as the conduits of foreign direct investment (“FDI”) and regional economic development in the Program – are IIUSA’s core members. As a reflection of the international and interdisciplinary makeup of the Regional Center industry, IIUSA also has Associate members from numerous professions and from around the world, including: attorneys, broker-dealers, consultants, developers, economists, financial advisors, migration intermediaries, etc. To date, IIUSA represents over 290 Regional Center members and 170 Associate members, with our Regional Centers accounting for approximately 95% of all the EB-5 capital formation (billions of dollars), resulting U.S. job creation (tens of thousands of jobs), and tax revenue (over a billion dollars).
IIUSA has several missions:
- Be a strong, unified voice for permanent authorization and improvement of the EB-5 Regional Center Program to enhance Regional Center activities.
- Stimulate economic development and job growth in the United States.
- Advance and maintain Regional Center industry standards and best practices.
- Educate the public and government about the benefits derived by the Regional Centers through the EB-5 investment program.
- Represent Regional Centers and facilitate their efforts in addressing administrative, regulatory and legislative issues at all levels of government.
