If I have tenants in my project business who will be creating their own businesses, can I count those jobs towards qualifying EB-5 job creation?

This is referred to as 'tenant occupancy' in EB-5. While this is allowable, there are several hurdles that must be jumped in order to qualify for this kind of job claim and there is often some back-and-forth with USCIS before they will allow it. For example one must be able to demonstrate that the tenant business is not moving jibs from another location. For a complete overview of tenant occupancy requirements have a look at the Guidance Memorandum issued by USCIS on December of 2012:
