    The regional center may use administrative fees toward the operation of the regional center. The regional center may not use any EB-5 funds from a foreign investor to operate the regional center as those funds must be used toward job creation activities

    The regional center can use some if the administration fees paid by the investors as well as from the returns on the investment paid by each investor.

    Any funds not included in the EB-5 invested capital ($500,000 or $1 million).

    There is no general rule or limit on the funds that the regional center can use to operate and run the regional center. Each regional center has its own unique guidelines.

    Initially, a regional center will need some of its own funds to retain professionals (immigration counsel, economist, brokers, etc.). There are opportunities for the regional center to use portions of the administration fees from investors for operations costs
