Can I use gifted funds to apply for EB-5? I am interested in investing in a regional center but do not have all the required funds. Is it acceptable that my uncle provides me with the money which he would show was legally obtained? Including the $500,000 gift, my net worth would add up to around $700,000 USD, would this restrict me for trying to apply for EB-5? I don't know if this is relevant but my uncle’s net worth is way above the $1 million mark.
