The LAEDC Regional Center is a partnership between LAEDC and CanAm Enterprises, LLC (CanAm) to sponsor investment opportunities in qualifying projects that meet the requirements of the U.S. Immigration Investor Program (EB-5 Program).
Overseen by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 Program provides foreign nationals the opportunity to become conditional residents for two years upon making an investment of $500,000 in a designated targeted employment area in a new commercial enterprise. Each unit of investment must create at least ten new, direct or indirect jobs for U.S. workers. Once the job creation requirement is met, the conditions are removed and investors may obtain permanent residency in the United States.
