My cousin and his family are from the UK and live in California - where he started a business. He's looking to invest in a project that meets the criteria for obtaining a green card via the U.S. government's EB-5 Immigrant Investor program.

 

The stipulation for investment is,  "You must invest $1,000,000, or at least $500,000 in a targeted employment area (high unemployment or rural area)." The business must create at least ten full-time jobs. (Government's page on the program: http://1.usa.gov/9RItQM)

 

Common areas of investment for green card investors are ski resorts and hotels:

Has anyone dealt with this and found any investment projects that meet the criteria, yet would also appeal to a value investor? Thanks!
