Form I-956F approval means that the project’s documents have been reviewed by USCIS and were found to be compliant with the EB-5 program.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, April 29, 2024 / — EB5AN, a leading EB-5 investment fund manager, regional center operator, and consultancy firm, is pleased to announce that USCIS has approved another Form I-956F exemplar applications for its Twin Lakes Georgia rural EB-5 project.

“In December 2023, Twin Lakes Georgia received its first I-956F approval, and its second in February 2024,” said Sam Silverman, a managing partner of EB5AN. “Now, we are thrilled to announce another approval of Form I-956F. The project has been approved by USCIS as an equity offering and as a loan offering multiple times. This most recent Form I-956F approval was received in under five months.”

Form I-956F approval means that the project’s documents have been reviewed by USCIS and were found to be compliant with the EB-5 program. This means that USCIS has accepted not only Twin Lakes Georgia’s rural designation and job creation methodology, but it has accepted the project’s secured loan structure and other key EB-5 investor protections multiple times.

Silverman added, “While Twin Lakes Georgia has always been a low-risk project, I-956F approval confirms it. The key factors that lower risk for this project are compliant with the EB-5 program. With the Kolter Group as the developer, thousands of qualifying EB-5 jobs already created, strong financial security, and USCIS project approval, the immigration and financial aspects of the project are very compelling for EB-5 investors seeking a high-quality rural EB-5 project. An EB-5 investor in Twin Lakes Georgia has only to prove a legal source of funds, and he or she should receive a permanent Green Card.”

Under the EB-5 program, a regional center must file Form I-956F for each of its projects. If USCIS denies this project application, the project’s EB-5 investors’ immigrant petitions will also be denied.

“With this latest approval, EB5AN maintains its perfect record of compliance with USCIS,” said Mike Schoenfeld, the other managing partner of EB5AN. “We always do our best to make sure our projects fully comply with the EB-5 program, but we cannot know whether USCIS will approve a project until we receive the approval notice. With another approval for Twin Lakes Georgia, our EB-5 investors can invest with confidence knowing that USCIS has, on multiple occasions, reviewed and accepted the Twin Lakes Rural EB-5 project as compliant.”

Twin Lakes Georgia is a best-in-class rural EB-5 project. The project involves the development of a 1,300 single-family home community for active adults age 55+. Home sales remain strong with 620+ homes already sold and nearly 500 already completed and delivered to homeowners.

The project is being developed by the Kolter Group, one of the largest private home developers in the Southeast. Kolter has a perfect track record of completing its projects and repaying its debts. All EB-5 investments in Kolter projects have either been repaid or remain in good standing.
