About DC Regional Center
DC Regional Center, located in Washington, D.C., was designated as an EB-5 regional center by USCIS in April 2008. DC Regional Center is approved to operate in all eight wards of the District of Columbia. The regional center specializes in the industries of port improvements and expansion, retail space (including restaurants), hotels, professional office space, medical offices and laboratories, industrial/warehouse manufacturing, and fuel processing plants and renewable fuel power plants. Within the District, the DC Regional Center limits project locations to Targeted Employment Areas, seeking opportunities that receive a government-financing subsidy. As a result, many projects are built on government-owned land.
DC Regional Center is committed to creating jobs in its designated region, increasing economic production, and assisting foreign investors and their families to acquire permanent residency. In addition to an extended collaboration with the state of Vermont's Regional Center, DC Regional Center has helped entrepreneurs from more than 20 countries obtain their U.S. residency, while preserving or creating hundreds of jobs for U.S. workers.
Co-owner of the DC Regional Center, David M. Morris has 17 years of experience as a national lawyer in the field of business immigration, with a focus on investor visa programs. Morris is the founder and managing member of the Washington, D.C., office of the Visa Law Group. He was also a team leader of Baker and Hostetler’s Immigration Law Section, one of the largest law firms in the United States. In 1989, Morris received his bachelor’s in political science from the University of Buffalo, and in 1992, he graduated with his law degree from the University of Dayton. A 13-year member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Morris is also a licensed member of the Maryland and Massachusetts bar associations of Maryland and Massachusetts.
