What is a Form I-956F?

Form I-956F submits to the USCIS comprehensive information about both the New Commercial Enterprise (NCE) and the Job-Creating Entity (JCE) associated with a project. This includes their names, ownership, organizational structures, and contact details. The form also asks for the project’s location, its status as a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), and the basis for this designation, along with the anticipated amount of EB-5 investment to be raised and the industries impacted.

A key component is the mandatory Form I-956H, which must be filled out by all individuals with significant authority in both the NCE and JCE. This includes a wide range of roles, such as owners, principals, and other decision-makers. These individuals must provide detailed information regarding their role in managing EB-5 capital.

Furthermore, the regional center must make certain certifications in Part 6 of Form I-956F. This involves affirming that all material risks have been disclosed to investors and disclosing any bankruptcy or litigation issues, as well as potential conflicts of interest concerning the project.

The regional center is also required to confirm that it has established policies and procedures to oversee the issuance of securities. Evidence of these policies and procedures should have already been submitted with Form I-956 for obtaining a USCIS designation.

Lastly, Form I-956F mandates the submission of all offering documents related to the project. These documents encompass a range of materials like the offering memorandum, various agreements, business plan, economic impact study, and TEA validation report. A best practice suggestion is to include a complete template of Form I-526E to be filed by their investors. This I-526E Petition is known as an “Exemplar.”
