Congress today passed and the President signed a short-term spending package that includes an extension of the EB-5 Pilot Program until March 23, 2018. The two-year deal for defense and other government spending does not affect the EB-5 extension. They are separate items in the same bill.
Congress now has six weeks to pass an EB-5 reform bill. If they don’t, the USCIS will likely raise the minimum amount to $1.35 million through a change in regulations.
