Firm continues rapid growth; expands into Philadelphia, San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington, D.C.

DALLAS, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Civitas Capital Group ("Civitas"), a specialty asset management and financial services firm with operating divisions focused on Alternative Investments, EB-5 Capital and Wealth Management, today announced that United States Citizen and Immigration Services ("USCIS") has approved the establishment of three new EB-5 Regional Centers covering Northern California, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.

These new Regional Centers will facilitate substantial and valuable economic development at essentially no cost to taxpayers in three key economic regions in the country. The Regional Centers will seek foreign investors to fund a variety of investments, including real estate, infrastructure and healthcare.

"We've expanded rapidly outside of Texas this year," said Civitas' Chief Executive Officer Dan Healy. "Civitas has become one of the leading providers of EB-5 investment opportunities offering international investors a strong selection of prospective investments across the U.S."

The new EB-5 Regional Centers will provide economic development opportunities in the following communities:

  • Civitas NorCal Regional Center
    • Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano, and Sonoma.
  • Civitas Philadelphia Regional Center
    • Delaware - New Castle;
    • New Jersey - Burlington, Camden, Gloucester;
    • Pennsylvania - Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery; and,
    • Philadelphia.
  • Civitas Washington, D.C. Regional Center
    • Maryland - Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Calvert, Charles, Columbia, Federick;
    • VirginiaFairfax, Fauquier, Loudon, Prince William, Spotsylvania, Stafford; and,
    • Washington, D.C.

"Regional Centers take a significant amount of work to manage properly, so we've been extremely selective in the development process," continued Healy. "We seek out markets where our partners have an established track record and where we see opportunity to build on our already close relationships with key project sponsors.  At the same time, we look to uncover investment opportunities that are powerful and compelling to the global investors that we serve.  This strategy is working and I'm really excited about the momentum we've built during the first half of the year."

A Regional Center is an economic entity, public, private or a hybrid of both, established to promote economic growth, improve regional productivity, create jobs and increase domestic capital investment. Congress created the EB-5 Regional Center Program in 1992, facilitating residency applications for foreign nationals willing to invest significant capital in the United States to create permanent, high-quality jobs. 

Through its EB-5 Capital division, Civitas is the manager of 13 Regional Centers throughout the United States, which have funded or are in the process of providing hundreds of millions of dollars of EB-5 capital to a range of projects. The projects have created thousands of jobs in the communities where they are located.  Earlier this year, Civitas secured approval to operate Regional Centers in Atlanta, Denver, Miami and New York City. The company is the exclusive EB-5 partner for several Texas cities, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Laredo, and El Paso.
