AAED is committed to continued job creation and investment in American communities through the EB-5 program.

A competitive economy

is a strong economy.

EB-5 immigrants have invested at least $20 billion in the U.S. economy since 2008. 

Created over 174,000 jobs, which equates to approximately 16 jobs per investor.

The Flats East Bank Project was one of the first new, large­-scale commercial developments in the City of Cleveland in over a decade, and its construction helped to jump start Cleveland's renaissance. A key portion of the funding came from Cleveland International Fund and the EB-5 Program - without which the Project would have never been successful.
