Association to Invest in USA (IIUSA)
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. 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 170+ Regional Center members and 190+ Associate members, with our Regional Centers accounting for over 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).
Creating Jobs Through Investments
IIUSA’s operations cover advocacy, industry development, and education – sometimes across national borders. The Program has grown exponentially since 2008, thanks in most part to the strong “post-recession demand” for “at risk” capital in the U.S. and the supply of unprecedented wealth that now exists overseas. This new macroeconomic reality is the environment for which this innovative regional economic development policy was designed. Program utilization is at an all time high with investor petitions more than doubling between fiscal year (FY) 2011 and FY2012 – accounting for approximately $2.0 billion in FDI in FY2012. Investor demand was at an all time high in FY2013, likely adding approximately $2.0 billion to the over $6.5 billion in EB-5 capital formation since FY2005.
