I discovered that EB5 Affiliate Network has two very useful tools related to EB-5 Targeted Employment Area (TEA) locations. These free tools assist users by providing an interactive national TEA map, as well as a national list of EB-5 state agencies that issue TEA letters.
If you need assistance with finding a TEA location, I highly recommend utilizing these two resources. Doing so will immediately help you determine if your project’s location automatically qualifies as an EB-5 Targeted Employment Area, allowing for an EB-5 project investment of $500K instead of $1 million. The interactive TEA map also has the ability to combine census tracts together so that you can see if your project location may qualify as a TEA through a combination of surrounding census tracts.
