[Q] Can an approved Regional Center be canceled by USCIS?


Yes, if the Regional Center commits fraud and misrepresents or remains inactive for a prolonged period of time without setting up EB-5 projects, or violates the parameters set out in the Regional Center Designation Letters, then USCIS may issue a Notice of Intent to Withdraw the Regional Center designation.

As of September 17, 2010, it appears that at least one designated regional center received a Notice of Intent To Terminate A Regional Center Designation for failure to follow the permitted parameters of their RC designation.
