The EB-5 program requires a qualifying investment in a new commercial enterprise. A new commercial enterprise is any for profit entity formed for the ongoing conduct of lawful business. A non-profit Children''s hospital would not qualify for direct EB-5 investment capital. However, a regional center engaged in the business of loaning capital to non-profit entities would qualify as a new commercial business under the program. You should be able to fund the Children''s hospital through the EB-5 program; it will be a matter of structuring the new commercial enterprise under a regional center according to USCIS regulations.
