What does a rural TEA mean for industry professionals and investors?

The RIA Act of 2022 created a unique set aside for areas designated as RURAL.

A project that is located in a rural TEA qualifies for priority processing of Form I-526 by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. These investors will qualify for set-aside visas from the rural TEA classification, which makes up 20% of the yearly allocation of EB-5 visas.
