IIUSA Honors 17 Member Regional Centers with I-829 Approval Awards at the EB-5 Market Exchange in San Francisco

For the second consecutive year, IIUSA honored Member Regional Centers who have been successful in bringing EB-5 projects “full circle” – that is those who have had clients’ I-829 petitions approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) in Fiscal Year 2014. Collectively, these projects have created thousands of jobs for the U.S. economy and stand as primary examples for why the EB-5 Regional Center Program should be permanently authorized by Congress.
