EB-5 Program


Jeffrey B. Carr Presented EB-5 Economic Impact/Contribution Study (May 2019)


On Wednesday May 7, EPR President Jeff Carr presented EPR’s economic impact/contribution study of EB-5 project capital investment activity under the regional center program during federal fiscal years 2014 and 2015.  Jointly sponsored by the EB-5 Investor Coalition and IIUSA (the EB-5 industry trade association), this was a landmark study which for the first time measured the full economic contribution (including jobs, output and labor income) of the regional center program’s $10.98 billion in EB-5 project capital investment activity from 439 active projects during the two-year study period.  The study found that robust inter-regional supply chains and significant project capital investment activity under the program in all parts of the U.S. resulted in significant and geographically-widespread contributions to U.S. economic activity—including an estimated 355,200 jobs for U.S. workers, more than $55 billion in U.S. output growth, and $23 billion in increased U.S. labor income over the two federal fiscal years. These contributions accounted for 6.6% of the net new private sector jobs created by the entire U.S. economy, an estimated 3.4% of the U.S. economy’s total output growth, and approximately 2% of total labor income gains all relative to the net gains for the U.S. economy as a whole during the study period.  The OMB analyst in charge of the review of the proposed DHS regulations asked good follow-up questions about the study during the meeting, and the conversation on all points reflected a fully-engaged analyst interested in understanding all of the key facts related to the regulatory proposal.  EPR was pleased to present important economic testimony as part of the proceeding reviewing the proposed DHS EB-5 regulations initially published in January of 2017.
