IIUSA

Founded in 2005, the Association to 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 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 82 Regional Center members and 160+ 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 federal/state/local tax revenue (billions of dollars).
