One key advantage of applying for an EB-5 investor visa through the Grand Canyon Regional Center is that it satisfies the program’s job-creation requirements by counting not only direct jobs created, but also indirect jobs created as a result of the investment. Regional Centers are able to calculate indirect job creation through the use of approved input-output employment modeling systems.
Throughout the life of each project, Grand Canyon Regional Center closely monitors these direct jobs on a semi-annual basis, using our own job-reporting forms. These job-reporting forms are supplemented with the project’s employment records. Indirect job creation is based on these new, direct jobs.
Multipliers calculate the number of indirect jobs resulting from each new direct job. Grand Canyon Regional Center’s approved job multiplier is the Regional Input-Output Modeling System (RIMS) II, developed and maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The Grand Canyon Regional Center has specifically targeted the medical and healthcare industry; projects focused on hospitals and medical services. Distressed commercial projects, real estate and foreclosed properties are available for a fraction of market value, with medical facilities among the options. Low-cost manufacturing financing is made available for light and heavy industry. Additional projects are focused on other industries.
