[Q] Can a job-creating entity be a non-profit organization?


In a direct EB-5 case, the answer is "no", because the underlying new commercial enterprise must create jobs directly, and only for-profit entities can be new commercial enterprises. However, in a regional center EB-5 case where a new commercial enterprise is engaged in making loan(s), i.e., Izumii case, borrower entity creating jobs can be a non-profit organizations such as museums and non-profit hospitals or churches.
