Economic Impact for Regional Investment Centers and Developers


The EB-5 visa for Immigrant Investors is a United States visa created by the Immigration Act of 1990. This visa provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States.  To obtain the visa, individuals must invest $1,000,000 (or at least $500,000 in a “Targeted Employment Area” – high unemployment or rural area), creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers excluding the investor and their immediate family.

Primm Research has recently worked on a variety of economic impact analyses for developers and business owners applying for EB-5 applications.

We assist by applying for Targeted Employment Areas (TEAs) and conducting economic impact studies. Out reports are submitted as a component of the application process. We assist the local regional investment center, Pittsburgh Regional Investment Center with business plan development and consultation.
