Regional centers may seek designation/approval for projects in any legal, for-profit business activity or industry. The most common regional center projects are in construction, hospitality, medical, and infrastructure. There are about 600 designated regional centers, so there are many more categories as well.

Although hotels, restaurants, and real estate projects are very popular, there are a wide variety of projects available. You will need to speak with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss your available options.

The regional centers'' investments in EB-5 program run the whole gamut ranging from agricultural to utilities/energy-generation related projects. Advisably, talk to an EB-5 attorney who can guide and research on the existing multitude of areas of investment. Also, if you have a preferred area of investment talk to an EB-5 attorney.

While those are probably the most popular, any type of project and business activity can be an EB-5 project (as long as it otherwise meets the USCIS EB-5 requirements). The regional center will need to be approved for that business activities of the project, which can be added through an amendment or the initial I-526 filings.

If you do your own regional center or your own project without a regional center, you can do any project you want that can create 10 jobs per investor. If you want to work with an existing regional center you have to contact each one to see what type of projects they might accept based on their geographical restrictions.

I am starting to see fair number of charter schools and assisted living facilities being promoted by regional centers. But, since they are fairly new ones with no track record, it is hard to say if they will be successful ultimately.
