What is a Form I-956?

Form I-956, titled “Application for Approval of an EB-5 Investor Regional Center,” is used by an organization seeking to be designated as an EB-5 Regional Center.

A Regional Center is an entity, organization, or agency that has been approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to promote economic growth, improve regional productivity, create jobs, and increase domestic capital investment in targeted areas.

With Form I-956 the new Regional Center provides detailed information about:

  • Its proposed economic activities,
  • The geographical area it intends to serve,
  • Its business plan and how it plans to focus on job creation and capital investment,
  • Its organizational structure and the principals involved in the center,
  • Compliance measures to adhere to the laws and regulations governing the EB-5 program.
