Why Vermont?


Economic Development

See some of the many reasons that Vermont is a leader in economic development and a wonderful place for business and commerce.

Additionally the Vermont EB-5 Regional Center is the only USCIS Designated Regional Center in the United States owned, controlled and supervised directly by a state government. As the only state run, statewide EB-5 regional center, Vermont offers businesses unique advantages.  The goal of the EB5 program is to incentivize investment and create American jobs by setting aside a pool of EB5 visa green cards for qualified foreign investors that invest capital into approved EB-5 projects.  Learn more about the opportunities provided by this program at the EB-5 page at the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
