[Q] How many designated regional centers are there and how many are pending?


As of March 3, 2011, there are over 100 regional centers designated by USCIS, and there are more than 50 regional center applications pending. This means within one-year time, there may be over 150 designated regional centers. Note that not all designated regional centers are active, and the track records vary greatly among designated regional centers.

Does this increase of regional centers mean that the EB-5 regional center program is a huge success? No. It just means the economy sucks, and there are some desperate developers looking for low financing. Also, a few regional centers did well, so every new regional center thinks that it can do just as well.
